By giving them small choices, you're teaching them to learn to make choices so as they grow and are faced with bigger ones- they'll have the background to think the consequences thru too. Those parents that don't even let their child(ren) choose between nuggets and a burger at McDonalds are the ones who end up with kids who are lost when mom and dad aren't around to dictate their lives anymore.

Funny - I always told my kids what you said. They didn't come with an instruction manual. It was trial and error. And with 5 kids- no 2 are alike and what works with one... rarely works with the next.
