Studies show that giving kids choices to decide helps them:
1. develop better perception of things around them, how to make good judgment and even develop their sense of self-confidence;
2. be in control thus it gives them logical assessment and perception of situations;
3. have sense of self-reliance, consequently confidence is boosted;
4. get an idea of how "cause and effect" happens , which they will use later and very frequently in adult life!
Giving choices need not be in all situation. When "no choice" situations happen, it is best that we explain it to them!
