Living Our Vocations, Season One, Book Club Episode 1 (The Book, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child, with Anna Mussmann)

 

In this episode, Kaitlyn talks to Anna about the introduction and first chapter of the book Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child by Anthony Esolen. Anna shares her insights into education and discusses how we can expand our children’s (and our own) imaginations. We consider questions like:

  1. How can we help engage our children in learning history and teach them to respect those who have gone before us, instead of just accepting the politically correct stereotypes commonly taught today?
  2. Why is memorization useful, especially when so much information is just a Google search away?
  3. How can we teach our children to appreciate nature, and spark their imaginations with time spent outdoors?
