the little situations presented are fine and you are given multiple choice answers for the kids to read and decide which is the best way to handle the situation which is a good approach for kids. The issue I have is that the scriptures given at the end to "help decide" how to handle this situation do not really even seem to corelate to the sticky situation they are talking about. I don't think there has been one in almost the first two weeks using this that seems to really be relevant. I could have come up with much better verses on my own. Other than that Its a good tool to get them in the habit of regularly spending some time doing devotions and reading scripture.

We really love this family devotion! Each entry is short and to the point, with more detailed questions in the back of the book if you want to divulge further. It has sparked some great conversations with our 7 year olds. I think that the age range for this book would be 6-10 years old. I think older kids would find some of the situations elementary and while a parent could use it as a base and take it further, it would require more prep time. I like that we can sit down and I can open it up and having never seen it before, jump right in.

Love this devotional. The situations presented each day are very realistic and applicable. My 9 year old and I read these every morning at breakfast. Quick, attention holding, applicable. I love how the pages are dated, so if we miss a day, we just keep going to the current date. This is a devotional we can use year after year because the situations are applicable to every age group, even parents! It's a keeper!

We are using this book as a curriculum for our Wednesday afternoon programming. The situations are relevant and our grade school kids are really tuned in. We are picking and choosing which ones to use with our first through third grade group. Some of the situations would be more appropriate for kids slightly older or in a family devotion atmosphere,

This is a very nice devotional for kids. It gives an everyday situation, then multiple choice answers on the correct way to handle it. For the correct answer, there is a Bible verse to back it up. Great for parents to do with their children, and plenty of discussion opportunities.

The devotions are short, which CAN be nice if you are in a rush, but sometimes our children need extra time to talk about issues and what the bible has to say. This gives a scenario and then asks a multiple choice question, most of the time they are ridiculously obvious. My son always knows right away what the answer is. I have some issues with the scenario's in the book, yes, it touches on life issues (being introduced to drugs, stealing) but they are short and not very thought provoking. Even the extra questions in the back of the book are so obvious. I was hoping the stories would be longer and it would be a real conversation starter, instead it takes literally one minute to get done with the devotion for the night. It leaves me, more to be desired. Bedtime for us isn't usually a rush rush go to bed thing, nor are they just a child only thing, I like to read them with him. I am going to look for another devotional for boys. Maybe a more realistic one. My issue with the book is that scenario-wise the book is for probably young teens/preteens, but the answers in the book are elementary. My son is 9 and when we read a devotion, the answers are so obvious, that even if the scenario's don't fit into his life, he knows what the correct answer is. At 9, thankfully, he hasn't been introduced to drugs, but when asked the question "Should Jerry sniff the whiteout that his friend Scott is sniffing?" A) he should take one sniff and then say he didn't like it b) he should tell scott that he isn't feeling well, so maybe another time? c) should he should say "no thanks" and go right home to tell his parents that scott is sniffing whiteout or d) take the whiteout from scott and use it for correcting mistakes on his next paper. This isn't a quoted scenario from the book, just an example....but you get the jist of it. I think the scenario's could be better & longer (it reminds me of a test you take in elementary school), the questions afterward could be better, too. Will find another book.

The purpose of teaching our children about morals and values is to equip them with the ability to make good choices. The key word here is not "good choices." The key word is "MAKE." How are we to be successful in this if they do not have opportunities to MAKE good choices? This is why I love this book. The book plays out different real life scenarios, and then leaves your child to decide what the best choice to handle the situation is. The multiple choice layout is great. The author not only includes a worse and best choice option, but also choices that may be acceptable, yet not the best. I love how this book gets my children thinking. I gave the book 5 stars with no reservations at all.
We have been using Sticky Situations for a few months now and our kids love it. Our children are ages 6 & 11. The devotions are perfect for older elementary and middle school children, however, my 6 year old also loves to help figure out the solution to the problem. The book always gives one answer to the solution, but sometimes in real life, there may be more than one answer. This is a great opportunity for parents to jump in and guide kids in the way they should go. I love how the book brings up topics (like dating), that may not be on the mind of a parent of a middle schooler, but the kids are already on that page and ready to go. (kudos to the author!) GREAT discussions have come about as a result of this book. One thing to note, this book is a wonderful and fun tool to draw us to scripture to figure out life's sticky situations, but nothing is a substitute for diving deep into the Word of God every day.
