Tough Choices: Bringing Moral Issues Home is a unique resource for use in Catholic high schools and parish religious education or youth ministry programs. It provides concrete ways for teenagers to learn about, apply, and make choices involving a number of current and practical moral issues. However, the real uniqueness of the material is that it suggests ways for these dilemmas to be shared and discussed between the teens and their parents. How so? Though applicable in several different courses and programs, the basic approach is for a teacher, catechist, or youth minister to assign a moral dilemma to be taken home, read, and discussed using the questions that accompany each. A due date for the assignment is given. By that date, the teenager is to return the sheet to class, signed by his or her parents. This accountability helps to assure that parents not only have a voice in their teen's moral development, but continue in their God-given role as primary educators of their children. Each of the issues is prefaced by a general overview, providing the teacher some needed background to help introduce discussion. Another section summarizes the Catholic Church's teaching on each of these issues. Moral dilemmas can be assigned based on their correlation to topics being covered in the curriculum, issues that arise in the school or among the teen's peer group, current events, or in many other situations relevant to the particular school or parish. Tough Choices: Bringing Moral Issues Home also includes online access to allow teachers to adjust the dilemmas and change names and situations to better apply them to their own teenagers.
