Want to protect your child? Of course you do- we all do! And I've got a fantastic set of tools for you.
Now, I'm not talking about protecting them from physical harm, but from unscrupulous salesmen, advertising and marketing specialists, journalists with an agenda and bad relationships. And if you ask me, this type of harm can be a lot more common than their chances of getting hurt physically.
We can protect them by teaching critical thinking. Sadly, this vital skill doesn't always come naturally, and it's not often taught in schools. I don't want my children to be taken advantage of, and I know you don't want this to happen to your kids either- and that's why I'm sharing these awesome tools with you today.
These great tools require no prep, are perfect for afterschool teaching, and are easy to understand. So in other words, they are practically perfect in every way!
We really enjoyed reading this book as a family when we first read it a couple of years ago. It began many great conversations, and I learned about these things right along side my children.
But it's been a while, and I've been wanting to revisit it. When I went to look it up to reference it for this article, I was pleased to discover that there is also a companion book to it!
If my kids can think and reason clearly, as well as detect these types of negative tactics, either in their own reasoning or someone else's, then they (and myself!) will be less easily swayed by them and be able to make decisions based on principle.
Just think about the world wide impact this would have: politicians, voters, consumers, public policy makers—all of us making decisions based on sound principles, and not because of emotion or manipulation! Thinking of the results gives me goosebumps.
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
