Teaching Your Kids “How to Think” {FREE Workshop}

By now, most homeschools are in full-swing . . . getting back into a routine if you took a summer break. When I settled back into a new school year, I usually found a couple areas where we needed to make a change.

I often wondered if my homeschool was actually going to help my kids in their adult life. I wanted my kids to make wise decisions. To think Biblically as they make decisions. Use the grid of Scripture in all areas of their adult life.

After much research, as well as trial & error, I landed upon a strategy that I truly think helped my kids. They are all adults now, striving to make Biblical decisions.

So next Tuesday, I want to share my strategy that I used with my own kids…one that really helped my kids learn how . . .

To think for themselves.
To think Biblically & critically.
To be able to make decisions for themselves.

Join me for a free workshop next Tuesday:

  1. I would love to win because I think my daughter has high functioning autism and I believe this would help her. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    1. Sharon,
      You are welcome. I hope the workshop encourages you. If you still have questions about this topic and your daughter, please let me know.

  2. We are still new to homeschooling and trying to find what works best for us. I’m excited to learn more about mentoring in your upcoming workshop!

    1. Jennifer,
      Congrats on homeschooling. It can sometimes be difficult, but so rewarding. Watching my kids as adults has definitely given me a greater appreciation for homeschooling. Mentoring was one of my favorite methods in my homeschooling years.

      Let me know what questions or concerns you have as you get more into homeschooling. If I don’t have some ideas, I have friends who probably do.

  3. It is hard to teach your kids to think because they are so technology minded. They have everything at their finger tips. I do use classics to teach. We are big Charolette Mason fans!

    1. You’ll love what I share on the workshop and in my book. It goes so well with the Charlotte Mason method and classics. What’s your favorite part of Charlotte Mason homeschooling?

  4. I am trying to teach my children how to think by getting them to weigh both sides of an issue however that is not always easy! I am looking forward to learning more on this subject! (I apologize some of my punctuation marks seems to have quit working on my keyboard!)

    1. No worries on punctuation & your keyboard. I think you’ll find some new ways to encourage “thinking” on our workshop tomorrow. Glad you’ll be joining us.

  5. I want to learn on how to teach my daughter to think on her own. I’m blessed to discover this site. God bless and more blessings to come.

  6. I am interested in more strategies to help me teach my children how to think and examine things with a biblical worldview.

  7. It can be hard to teach my children how to think, because it seems much more natural and automatic to teach my children WHAT to think. However, I know that it is obviously much more beneficial to teach them HOW to think. This will prepare them for life so much better!

    Yes, I have used classics in educating my children. We enjoy reading a chapter from a classic each night before bed. They loved Charlotte’s Web and Little House in the Big Woods! Right now we are working through Little House on The Prairie. I think these help without me “preaching” at them. They see Laura trying to learn to obey her parents and be kind to her sisters, and they want to be like Laura

  8. i won’t be with them forever. and they must have the ability to think critically and most importantly, not be scared to make a decision. We live in a society that either kids are scared to make decisions for themselves because they haven’t been give the tools or they make decisions flippantly without counting the cost because parents think they are supposed to rescue them from every bad decision. We must teach bravery with truth and cover all of it with grace so that they know they can survive and that God will still be walking with them even if they make a hard choice and fail.

  9. Our kids need to be able to think for themselves. I won’t always be here to think for them. They have to be able to rely on themselves.

  10. It can be hard to teach kids how to think because most people don’t, so the most common example they see is of blindly believing whatever is taught. The Bible teaches that the wisdom of the world is foolishness, though, so it’s important to be able to think biblically!

  11. As a parent it is important that we train our children well with God’s help. Our children need to think for themselves. I tell my children that I cannot think for you. We all think and make choices: good choices and sometimes bad choices. For the children, I teach them about chouces that are made…we think these things out carefully and ask God for guidance. My children understand that if they do not think for themselves, someone will do it for them and it may not be a great outcome.

  12. I think, with technology, they get so much information, so fast, it’s hard for them (& me) to slow down and think critically about everything they hear and see.

  13. The biggest challenge to help my kids think for themselves is remembering to take the step back and actually let it happen. Sometimes it’s too easy to do the thinking for them, especially when it is an “important” decision.

  14. It is so important for us to help our children to learn to think critically for themselves. So vital that they feel comfortable and secure in the decisions that they make, while they understand that the Lord is guiding their path every step of the way. Look so forward to hearing this seminar, as wish to help our children to learn this most important and essential skill to help their lives now and as they grow up as well.
