3 Tips To Creating Kids That Are Good Decision Makers

Here are three tips to creating productive, critical thinking kids:
- Encourage curiosity and exploration. Children are naturally curious and eager to learn about the world. By providing them with opportunities to play, experiment, and ask questions, you can foster their critical thinking skills and help them develop a sense of wonder. For example, you can play board games with them, take them to museums or parks, or read books with them and discuss the stories12.
- Challenge their assumptions and opinions. Children often form beliefs and opinions based on their personal experiences, emotions, or influences from others. By challenging them to examine their own thinking and consider alternative perspectives, you can help them develop a more objective and rational mindset. For example, you can ask them to explain why they think or feel a certain way, present them with counterarguments or evidence, or expose them to different cultures and viewpoints34.
- Teach them how to evaluate information and sources. Children are exposed to a lot of information from various sources, such as the internet, media, or peers. By teaching them how to assess the credibility, accuracy, and relevance of the information they encounter, you can help them avoid misinformation and make sound judgments.
