Do you or don’t you offer your child choices?

I thought this post by Maggie Cheung was really interesting. She had heard that a lot of her friends had had success by offering their kids defined choices. “You can play with this or this.” The child would pick one of the 2. In Maggie’s case, things did not work out so well. When she offered her son choices, he would pick a third option that had not been offered. It just goes to show that all kids are different, and no one parenting style will work for everyone. Right?
