How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What other options were available to Larry after he lost his job? Do you think he made the right decision? Is there ever a point where you are too old to learn?

You may be surprised to discover these issues were already evident nearly ten years ago. This Canadian counseling firm has more information on pornography use and marriage.
