Engage Your Child's Learning
Education should prepare children to live in the world without becoming products of it. This means engaging even young children to identify and confront bad philosophy, philosophy that has turned the world upside down.
As C.S. Lewis said, “Good philosophy must exist, if for no other reason, because bad philosophy needs to be answered.”
Podcasts for Parents
The best way to confront bad philosophy is as a family in the home. And the earlier the child is exposed to good philosophy, the better. But how can parents engage their children in meaningful philosophical conversations? Challenging, radical ideas bombard children daily and are difficult to navigate. How can parents provide a philosophical line of defense when they themselves lack this knowledge?
Fathom the Good solves the problem by providing a Primer for Parents, a series of podcasts that provide busy parents with a general understanding and additional insights regarding what their children are learning. By engaging the whole family in Good Philosophy, children gain the confidence they need to flourish in an adversarial world.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
