D+D on PBS: Letting Go of Learning Styles

pbsparentslogo1

As parents, we always want what’s best for our children. That’s why we search for the healthiest foods, the safest car seats and the cutest little kid outfits we can find.

It’s also why, when we hear about a super simple technique that promises to instantly improve our child’s learning skills, we jump all over it in a hurry.

What is this miracle technique, you may ask?

It’s a concept called “learning styles,” and it’s the subject of our newest article on the PBS Parents website.

Read this article to find out what we – and tons of scientific researchers – have to say about the usefulness of:

  • Assessing whether your child is a Visual, Audio or Kinesthetic Learner
  • Adjusting your teaching style to match how each individual kid learns best
  • Forcing your toddler listen to you make fart noises with your armpit
  • And more!

The concept of learning styles has been tantalizing parents and educators alike for the past forty-plus years. And now you can learn everything you need to know about it in around six minutes!

If you like the other stuff we write – like this website, or our book full of science experiments you can perform on your own child, Think Like a Baby – then you’re going to love this article too!

So what are you waiting for? Go check it out now!
