You Also Must Teach Your Kids to…

Speak…in public.

Why?  Because, for the rest of their lives they will be called on to express their thinking one on one, in small groups, and in some cases in large groups.  Our children need to be effective communicators of the truth of the gospel and how it applies to life.
Our kids need to learn to express their thinking verbally.
To do that they have to be able to interact logically with people and know how to defend the hope that is in them.  It is a command of Scripture, 1 Peter 3:15.

The major challenge with this is to speak not from emotion or feelings but rather from fact.  That is where reading and writing will help your kids to clarify their thinking and hone their communication skills.
