A Walk in My Shoes

This is a good movie for the family, especially families with a parent in the military. Educationally, the message is to do your work to the best of your ability, and not to try to do something you can't handle just because someone you love is pushing you to do so. The importance of listening to other people in order to understand where they are coming from is also stressed, as well as doing what is in your means to help others around you.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Too much consumerism
