Research in the UK has shown that a big piece of the job skills gap is communication. This smart post is about ways parents can help kids improve those skills starting at an age when they are capable of thinking through a problem and developing the reasoning necessary to make a convincing argument. Age 7 is apparently the magic number.
And it’s all so very simple- just start and continue to ask “WHY” so they develop the these thinking skills. As with anything, start small and inconsequential, moving up to bigger more important issues as they mature.
If only everything we parents were supposed to do to help our kids develop strong minds were this easy!
