Surely all parents want to develop their children both physically and academically in their early stage. Especially, the first twelve years of the kids are considered extremely crucial to form their intellect. Hence, creating a chance for your children should be started in this golden period.
Basic intellectual foundations such as emotion, language, logical thinking, programming skill, etc are formed during the very first 12 years. During their natural development, they will have their own thoughts. The more thoughts they have in their golden period, the more creative ability they will possess in their later stage. That stimulates thinking development as well as other soft skills. Thus, assisting your children to grow their thinking in this stage is exceedingly essential.
1. Teaching your children to play smart
Exposure to many thinking games will help your children to have discovery thoughts, increase their IQ, and ignite their creative thinking within them. IQ test mini games requiring reasoning skills are the most effective way to grow your children’s brains without putting them under too much pressure.
2. Choosing suitable toys for your children
Puzzles, model-building games, and online games are so familiar to the kids. These games are so popular worldwide because they can help to increase kids’ creativity and thinking as well as drawing their attention.
3. Giving your children a chance to solve problems by themselves and accepting their mistakes
Having a different thought might not be efficient, but it doesn’t mean that’s wrong. Sometimes, you may be surprised beyond your expectations by how your children solve their problems. Therefore, let them think differently and keep moving forward.
4. Asking questions to stimulate your children’s thinking and debating skills
“How can your kids find out the problems and think deeply?” Instead of wondering by yourselves, let’s give it a try by using these below questions related to open questions, probing questions, cause and effect questions to stimulate their thinking ability. For example:
- How can you know this?
- Why do you choose this way? Does it have anything different?
- What do you think about the result?
- What is the difference between these two things?
- What can you learn from this?
5. Stimulating logical thinking and creative ability through programming
Using technology in the right way may bring your children to the connection of the digital era, which doesn’t only focus on entertainment but also supports them in developing their thinking in the most natural way and getting more excited in learning. Therefore, “Computer Science and Programming” are widely integrated into teaching curricula from various countries, obtaining remarkable achievements in education.
