Critical Thinking: How to Grow Your Child’s Mind

Marilyn Price-Mitchell, PhD in Human Development, poses the following questions in her article on

“What kind of thinker is your child?  Does he believe everything on TV?  Does she always figure out how to get what she wants? Does he ask questions?  Does she go along with what her friends suggest?”

Price-Mitchell then identifies three common ways in which primary school students think, as well as how to encourage positive thinking behaviors. Whether in school or on break, the suggested parent-child activities can be wonderful tools for helping your learner to flourish!

Included are videos to watch and discuss with your child and five standards that can help your child to think critically. Click here to read the original article.
