“I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
One of the best ways to develop your child’s critical thinking skills is to help him/her make decisions. By offering options, you are empowering your child to think for him/herself. Having the confidence to make decisions increases your child’s self-esteem and sense of self worth and fosters independence. This also leads to less of a power struggle for control of the situation. Help you child to make healthy responsible decisions in the future, let them be part of the decision making process.
