Transcript of Raising A Thinking Child by Myrna B. Shure Emilee Winfield

Raising A Thinking Child By Myrna B. Shure I chose this book because
I wanted to learn how to
teach kids to problem
solve and be independent. Main highlights: How to think, not what to think Playing with Words:
NOW/LATER Understanding feelings
Asking the child how they feel
and how they think others feel. ICPS "I-can-problem-solve" My Favorite Quote: "Repetition of the words in
problem situations began to
change the way Alex and Alison
viewed their problems almost immediately." Page 33 This quote shows that by simplying changing
the way you talk, you can help your child
learn to problem solve. This book is important to me
because it is a great teaching tool.
"Raising a Thinking Child" helps you understand
how a child thinks and how they learn best.
I can use what I have learned with kids
I work with in the future. http://www.thinkingpreteen.com/thinkingchild.htm This website is available to anyone.

It is the book's site but offers a lot
of tips and advice for not only children,
but teens and parents.

You can also order the book and audio from this site.

Lastly, you can find out more about the author. http://www.parentingtoolbox.com/ This website is full of
good information
but is entertaining and fun.
It shows parenting
tips, new research, and it
has a section on problem
solving skills. Questions for the author 1. What other books do you recommend? 2.How much research have you done? 3. Where did you go to college? I would ask these questions to get more information on problem solving. Also, getting to know the author would help me understand her thinking and her process. 4. Is it better to use the workbook
and read the book at the same time? 5. Are there any more problem
solving words? The End :)
