The most effective way to connect with children, while preparing them for life, is to focus your interactions on things that accomplish both at the same time. Here’s how to foster a relationship with your children and help groom them for the sea of opportunities that await them in the modern world.
Learning to Think
Most learning methods are based on some facet of the theoretical idea to enhance critical thinking. As the world changes and drifts farther away from a more simplistic lifestyle, thinking becomes even more essential.
While critical thinking skills are important for creating change, it is also necessary to cope with change itself. When children do not develop a base foundation for thinking through problems, these problems can become overwhelming and lead to lifelong issues with self-esteem and motivation.
The most important thing in helping your child learn critical thinking skills is to allow them to think for themselves. Too many times parents and educators want to automatically provide answers, when in fact it is far more beneficial to the child if they are permitted to figure some things out for themselves.
The process of teaching children to think for themselves can begin at the earliest age. Engaging a toddler in a conversation about what time it reads on a clock and where the sun is at the time will perk their interest to discover. Amazingly, the worlds of science and inquisition will be sparked as your child begins to ponder why the sun comes up at the same time every day.
