This project produced a handbook that parents can use with their primary age children to help develop critical thinking skills. Three areas were researched: child cognitive development, critical thinking skills, and parent involvement in their children's academic development. It was found that primary age children are capable of critical thinking; critical thinking can be taught and practiced; and parental involvement in their children's learning can have a positive effect on the child's academic achievement.
