Stop solving problems for kids!
Learning from problems is an important skill for kids to develop.
Encourage kids to reflect on the problem or challenge they faced.
Guide children to think about possible solutions or strategies they could have used to overcome the problem. Encourage creativity in problem-solving.
Shift the focus from just the outcome to the process of problem-solving. Highlight the efforts they made, and the strategies they tried.
Help kids understand that making mistakes is a natural part of learning. Emphasize that mistakes provide opportunities for growth and improvement.
Teach kids the importance of persistence and resilience in the face of difficulties.
Celebrate their efforts and growth, and encourage the learnings. #torontokids
