In junior high or high school science we were all taught these steps in problem solving. Some of us still don’t consistently apply it.
• Identify the Problem
• Identify Possible Causes
• Identify Possible Solutions
• Identify the Best Solution.
• Set Specific Goals to Solve Problems.
Children learn by example: how YOU react to problems, and how YOU solve problems. . .impacts how YOUR CHILD will solve problems.
I urge you to make a POSITIVE impact: whenever you have a problem, try talking through it out loud so your child can hear your thoughts. See an example here.
