The Great Shalom Podcast : Overcoming Learning Disabilities
How to Tell What is True — and How to Teach that Skill to Your Children
Here are 7 quick keys to how to tell what is true. This is an important lesson for children diagnosed as "learning disabled" because although they are bright, they are spending so much time on decoding, they have a hard time with higher order reading comprehension. Similarly, many of these children have poorer social skills -- for any number of reasons. So, they may be behind in sorting our truth from "stories." If we teach them directly, we can make up for much of that difficulty. However, today, it looks like everyone needs some lessons in pinpointing Truth and Error and sorting between the two. When one begins to think about some things in the discussion today, it is hard not to make fun of the gullibility. Let's don't be those who are snookered! More importantly, let's protect our kids through more direct teaching of this life skill.

If you do your own search, you will see that there has been a lot of energy to teach critical thinking in a way that debunks Christian faith -- which isn't logical at all. If all truth is known by what is empirical (which is their position), then they can not say anything about the metaphysical or supernatural -- by definition. Thus they can not say that the supernatural is bunk, but only that they have no knowledge of it. Perhaps they are tone deaf, eh? That is logical! For more on this, see the work of Ravi Zacharias. www.RZIM.org Dr. Zacharias and his institute at Oxford did wonderful, high level apologetics. I can not account for why search engines are full of the tawdry -- except for the psychological dynamic of projection, the impetus to snooker, and the need for this lesson.
Please share good resources, especially those aimed at children.
BTW, I mentioned my series Dangerous Times, thinking it was already ready, but alas, it required both editing and uploaded. However, it is in the store now. Just select "shop" from the tabs. It is great for both parents and teachers and I have it on a big big sale. It is a right now word.
