Helping Your Child Learn

If you want to help your child develop into a better thinker you can let your child try to teach you something. Let them pick the subject they think you need to learn about.

When they are teaching it to you it will make them have to think it through and figure out what is needed to get you to understand what they are teaching you. They will most likely have to slow down and take you through each step of the process of what you are learning and in doing this they will learn more about it themselves. It may help them if they try to teach you something they that are not very proficient in so they can learn even more through trial and error.

Warning: This could cause lots of laughter and fun, just make sure they think it's funny too before you laugh or it could ruin the whole thing and backfire on you.
