Subject: Be SHURE to Listen

Hi,
I highly recommend visiting Myrna Shure's website especially the interview , great resource for spouses to listen to
http://thinkingchild.com/
Her work helps parents to become thinking parents, good problem solvers and in turn help children to become thinking children and problem solvers. How we talk to kids makes the difference - ask questions , use dialog questioning. There is lots on the site. There is an one hour interview which your spouse or any other care givers can also listen to , there are excerpts from her books which you can print out and share , also conference notes etc. She offers very practical advice on how to teach thinking , how to teach the process and the skills, how to involve kids in problem solving. Problem solving promotes many cognitive functions including executive functions, language processing skills, social skills, emotional regulation skills and cognitive flexibility
