Episode 117: Julie Bogart – Raising Critical Thinkers

Julie Bogart has a book called Raising Critical Thinkers which is mainly what we talked about in this episode. We chat not only about raising critical thinkers but also how to be critical thinkers ourselves. Julie provides passionate & compassionate exploration of what critical thinking is and how to hone this vital skill set in our children.

Julie is the mother of 5 grown children and has so much wisdom to share in this episode! We had such a candid conversation about how to think for ourselves in a world where information is constantly being thrown in our direction.
