I came across the following sentence and I would like ask to if it is grammatically correct?
There is a phrase " to think through" which means to think carefully over something and there is a phrase " to think for yourself" which means you take your own decision in dictionaries. However, there is no a phrase " to think something through for yourself".
I think it means " making own decision after a thorough thinking" but is it standard English?
They need to be able to think things through for themselves and show initiative, not wait for direction.
