Problem Solving

Problem solving skills are important to learn from a young age. It helps us become more independent individuals and a functional member of any team! Having children become an active participant in the problem solving process rather than simply doing/solving the problem for them can increase their independence and cognitive skills. Try engaging children in a variety of situations where they need to help you solve! For example, “help me set the table for dinner”
-How many people will be eating? (how many of each item do we need!)
-What kinds of dinnerware do we need? (bowls or plates!)
-What kind of utensils do we need?
-Will we need napkins?
-Where should we set the dishes down? (location of dinner)
