Who Do You Want Your Child to Be?

19 Mar

Another cracking BBC programme: Who Do You Want Your Child to Be? This programme investigates the effects of education on your child and how to make the most of it. Interestingly, some points presented are also discussed in Endangered Minds by Jane Healy, Ph.D.

The programme discusses the importance of play, teaching reading (evidence is presented that shows how important phonics is), the theory that we’re born with mathematical awareness, the danger in certain types of praise, bribing children to do well in school, the teen years, and more.

Unfortunately, there’s not even a mention of homeschooling.
