We are not alone; we live in a society. So, our baked-in gifts of Empathy, Reflection and Language are both necessary and invaluable. And the best news about these gifts is that they give us all the chance to teach. This is valuable because the best way to convince—teach—yourself of something is to convince—teach—someone else. When you see your child trying to convince someone of her point of view, let her. She is not trying to convince her audience; she is trying to convince herself and come to a justified belief through critical thinking. She just needs a guide. Tell her why this is important not how.
