The American culture seems to be in decline. Could it be because we have not learned from history?
One excellent way to engage your teen in understanding history is through a good biography. But that raises the question: Should I require my teen to read a biography?
Not only should our kids be required to read Scripture, they should also be required to read some good biographies—stories of extraordinary people who developed moral character from the compelling events that defined their lives.
In today’s digital age, holding our kids’ attention is harder than ever. But, a compelling biography from history can be a great way to inspire our kids, while increasing their ability to focus. A compelling contemporary biography can be an even greater tool to inspire Junior, since he might identify with the content and context more readily. Either way, engaging the tragedies and triumphs from the real stories of real people will help give our kids a better perspective on life.
