The essentiality of good cognitive habits in critical thinking is undoubtedly very vital. In our daily endeavours, we encounter diverse problems that require a stable and sane mind for sound decision-making. In as much almost every person comes across or finds themselves in sticky situations. I believe that mothers require positive cognitive habits to tackle the various circumstances they experience. For instance, a mother discovers her child has a chronic disease that has no cure: her four-year-old son suffers from Alexander’s disease. How will she use her perceptive skills to help her son remain, hopefully critically?
Self-regulation will be a critical factor in helping the kid live with his condition. The ability to monitor one’s interests, and state and maintain a normal life would help a great in making the child with Alexander’s disease stay cool. The child’s mother would train the kid to manage his emotions, thus avoiding stress and depression (Facione, 1998), which will shorten his lifespan. When the mind is self-regulated, sound decision-making is always evident: because people get to know themselves and are hence involved in actions that befit their situation.
The mother will use her evaluation skills to critical help her son live longer. Being that Alexander’s disease has no cure, the power to make the child healthy and stable solely relies on her evaluation of the situation to make the boy more esteemed. Citing the son’s positive qualities now and then enhances his confidence (Rubenfeld and Scheffer,2015). The inability to walk and seizures tied to the disease need final evaluation to solve the problem. Seeking medical attention helps save the situation in the long run, and that comes up when the mother has carefully evaluated the situation and settled on a long-term solution.
Finally, the mother would use her inference and interpretation skills to aid her in remaining emotionally stable (Read Finn, 2011). Being that she is human and bound to elicit natural emotions like breaking down, a strong will for interpretation would be her only solace in her son’s case. She can interpret the disease as a test from God on her faith and hope.
In a nutshell, the real employment of cognitive habits always helps in critical decision-making in any situation. When one encounters problematic circumstances, only their perception of it will assist in handling the problem.
