Most of us think communication is difficult because we don't know how to say it right. Except for the problem of the curse on communication (see Genesis 11), the REAL REASON is about our behavior, even more than our words. Here's a quick explanation that could change everything!
Fred Ray Lybrand
There is definitely something even more important than the basics…that is, there is one thing that will have as marked an impact on how educated (and articulate) a person will be.
I’m a big fan of the basics, so I’m not saying scratch them…but your student will get so much less without this strategy included in his world.
I can look at my own life, and with all the ways my dad may have failed me (in theory), he succeeded gloriously here. Also, I think all the kids would admit we did OK on this one too!
I hope this spurs you on to add this as an intentional part of your parenting and education.
