"Teach Your Child How To Think", from world-renowned writer and philosopher Edward de Bono. The greatest gift we can give our children is the ability to think for themselves. Unfortunately, this is not something that can be learned at school or from any child's friends or peers. Only a parent may teach it. Edward de Bono, the lateral-thinking pioneer, shows in a simple and practical way how any parent can develop the thinking skills of their children. This is not about winning arguments, learning facts or articulation, but about constructive thinking, making the right choices and decisions, planning and creativity. This book gives invaluable techniques for coping with the many problems and opportunities that lie in wait for your child. It might just be the best start you can give them in life. "An inspiring man with brilliant ideas. De Bono never ceases to amaze with his clarity of thought". (Sir Richard Branson). Edward de Bono invented the concept of lateral thinking. A world-renowned writer and philosopher, he is the leading authority in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill. Dr de Bono has written more than 60 books, in 40 languages, with people now teaching his methods worldwide. He has chaired a special summit of Nobel Prize laureates, and been hailed as one of the 250 people who have contributed most to mankind. Dr de Bono's titles include classic bestsellers such as "Six Thinking Hats", "Lateral Thinking", "I Am Right You Are Wrong", "Teach Yourself How To Think", "Teach Your Child How To Think", and "Simplicity".Read Less
At 313 pages, De Bono puts allot of thought and effort into his methodology of teaching children successful thinking strategies, and to develop a healthy and positive approach to problem solving.
Basically he wants to promote a stress free way to assist children to think, and not let critical thoughts dominate and destroy creative approaches to solutions.
Some of his strategies are parallel thinking, the 6 hats, and lateral thinking.
This book is a useful tool in developing a positive approach to creative problem solving. There may be other books that have different ways to achieve the same means, but I have as yet to discover them. I whole heartedly recommend this book.
