Designed to encourage rational decision-making, this set of 30 photographic cards depicts unexpected or unwelcome situations, varying from minor difficulties like missing a bus, to dangerous predicaments such as finding a saucepan on fire. The set is designed to encourage children to use reasoning skills to make prompt and rational decisions. They will help children:
• Make responsible choices • Develop independent thought • Keep safe • Understand the differences between minor difficulties and emergencies • Realize that some problems are practical and that some include an element of social behaviour • Know when there is danger or potential danger • Understand that sometimes you should ask for help,
sometimes take the initiative and walk away • Find a balance between acting quickly and considering all aspects of a situation • Recognize that there will be consequences of intervening and think about what might happen next.
