How to Raise Your Children to be Leaders

Leadership education is a method of bringing up your kids to become respected future leaders, successful businessmen, revered church leaders and righteous statesmen in the community. These are leaders who seek change in our community. It's a parent's hope that your children will become excellent future leaders.

People wonder why one child receives leadership education and the other receives training to become a follower. The thing is, a child who is schooled in the right way to think, will more likely become future leaders. When young people think outside their comfort zone, when they work on their own way, and use it in life, then they grow to become tomorrow's leaders, doing what is right.

How is do you train children to think? How can you do this in your curriculum. . .  for free?

Andrew Kern, which hails from Circe Institute, says that the quality of your life depends on the quality of the questions being asked. Since childhood, young leaders are asked the right questions. These questions go beyond the literal sense, evaluating and analyzing ideas before they do it.

Asking questions of your students is free and easy, as well as extremely effective. Questions should allow your children time to think and ponder. Your responsibility is deciding which questions are the best ones to ask and then leading a discussion with your students.

When a question is brought forth, then a decision must be made. As your kids answer the question, they are being trained to make good decisions. At times, these decisions are offered through a mentor. It's best to give your students a lot of time to practice answering questions with you near them. A nice topic to start questioning is from the classic book you are reading together.

Choose a classic book on your students' reading level. Have them read the book daily and write down their thoughts about the book. Once or twice a week you, as the teacher and mentor, lead a Socratic discussion. Begin by asking simple, literal questions to give your students confidence in participating.

After the simple questions, ask questions that use comparison. This might be simply comparing two people in the story or settings. Put the ideas on the whiteboard or blackboard to bring forth more communication. The main thing here is that you ,the mentor, must not answer your own question. If your child cannot answer the question, then rephrase it and wait for them to answer back. Silence is great at allowing our children to think on their own.

Leadership training is absolutely necessary in today's curriculum for your students. Questions and discussions are the beginning point of educating our children to be leaders who can think on their own.
