Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking is the skill that helps us evaluate ideas, concepts, theories, or practices, to determine whether they are right or wrong. It can be applied in any area of learning by helping learners think about what they don’t know, how they can improve their understanding, and how this will affect their lives. Critical thinking can help people make informed decisions, but it isn’t just for adults; children need to develop it as well, because if you don’t have a good grasp on how to think critically, then you may take something at face value without questioning why it was taught or not taught in school.

Questioning Everything

Questioning everything means asking yourself questions about your thoughts and beliefs, and those around you. This can mean challenging other people’s views, even when they’re important or powerful. It might feel uncomfortable at first, but there’s no point in getting comfortable with being ignorant. By questioning our own and others’ beliefs, we become more aware of how our minds work and how much power we hold over ourselves.

Being Creative

Creativity allows us to look at situations from different angles and explore alternative solutions, which makes us better problem solvers. Creativity doesn’t always involve originality – it could be doing something similar to someone else, but differently. For example, I’m not inventing anything, but I am making sure I get my point across effectively.

There are many ways to foster creativity in children. One way would be to create an atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to express their opinions. Another way would be to allow children to play freely, so they can experiment with themselves and their environment. In both cases, teachers and parents should give children opportunities to challenge themselves and try out new things without fear of failure. Encourage children to share their ideas and feelings. If we all communicate openly and honestly, we’ll find answers together.

Being Self-Reliant:

Self-reliance includes having confidence in one’s ability to solve problems and learn new information independently. Self-reliant children tend to grow up to be confident leaders who can solve problems and make positive changes. Parents can show their children that they trust them enough to let them do whatever they want, even though it might seem scary, risky, or dangerous. But the best thing a parent can do is to prepare their child for difficult times ahead. Teach those coping strategies and how to stay alive in case of an emergency.

Understanding Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is being kind and compassionate towards others. We are responsible for the way we treat each other. It is often said that “if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, then nobody will.” Our actions speak louder than words. So if we want to live peacefully, we must start practicing compassion today.

Taking Personal Responsibility:

Taking personal responsibility is showing empathy for oneself and acknowledging one’s weaknesses. When we fail, it’s tempting to blame the teacher, the test, the exam, or the world itself. But when we accept that we’ve made mistakes, it enables us to move forward, instead of continuing to wallow in regret. Children need to understand that it’s OK to admit when they don’t know something and ask for help. Asking for help shows humility and respect for others. They also need to know that it’s OK to make mistakes and ask for forgiveness.

Getting Along With Others:

Getting along with others is allowing others to have their own opinion, identity, and interests. It means recognizing that every person has his/her perspective and experiences. People usually experience the same things, but they see them through their lenses. The only solution is to empathize with them and listen to what they have to say.

Having Courage

Courage involves facing adversity head-on. It’s about doing something despite the possibility of failing or getting hurt. It’s the willingness to take risks and overcome fears. There are no guarantees in life, except death. So if you want to succeed, then you need to face your fear and try something new.


In modern day parenting there is need to understand empathy. Developing empathy involves understanding others’ emotions and thoughts. This skill helps us connect more deeply with the people around us and makes friendships last longer. Students should be taught to recognize and identify their emotional responses to gain
