- FAMILY ENGAGEMENT FOCUS -
Helping Your Child Problem Solve
When your child faces a problem, having a solid plan can help them figure out how to solve it. So whether they have had a disagreement with a friend or has fallen behind on their schoolwork,
suggest this approach.
● Identify the problem. Let them write a quick summary of what’s wrong. (“Elliott doesn’t like basketball, but that’s what I usually play at recess.”)
● Imagine the ideal solution. For instance, they probably wants to remain friends and still play basketball.
● Figure out alternatives. Encourage them to brainstorm solutions. Examples: “Offer to play with Elliott at recess every other day.” “See if he wants to find something to play that we both like.”
● Choose a solution. They could pick the solution they likes best or that they thinks is most likely to work.
● Evaluate. Have them try out that solution and ask how it went. If it didn’t work, then they can consider another alternative from their list.
