Kids are full of difficult, challenging questions. Why are we destroying the reef? Why won't we accept refugees on our shores? Is it ever ok to tell a lie?

Each of our minor and momentous decisions shape the world we’re making for our children. In this episode of AM Live, Dr Simon Longstaff offers engaging approaches to teaching children how to think and behave ethically.

"Every choice you make is what ethics is about...because ethics is ultimately about the science of choice. Every choice, every decision we make is capable of being the subject of reflection."  — Dr Simon Longstaff, Executive Director of The Ethics Centre, co-founder of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, and author of The Spider's Song and Everyday Ethics.
