Teaching Children To Think

ParentCircle

Thinking is a very important part of our life. As the famous French philosopher, René Descartes, said ‘I think, therefore I am’. For Descartes, the fact that we had the brilliant power to think was the only proof that we were real (at least in his early years).

But, what exactly is thinking?

Trying to define thinking is quite difficult. It is about problem-solving, moving from one thought to another, reasoning and so on.

Knowing how important thinking is, it is surprising that we don't pay much attention to developing our children's thinking abilities. However, there are many ways we can develop our child's thinking skills. But, to do that, you would first have to learn them.

In this ClipBook, we show you how you can help your child become better at thinking and why it would be beneficial.
