Raising a Problem Solver

Raising a Problem Solver

In this episode of The Empathic Parent, I am talking about:

  • Getting your child involved in the solutions process

  • How to raise children to think critically

  • The 7 steps in a problem solving conversation

  1. Connection / Empathy

  2. Understanding / Information

  3. Perspective Taking / Goal Setting

  4. Invitation to Find Solutions / Brainstorming

  5. Evaluate & Decide

  6. Consequence

  7. Re-evaluate

When raising children, we don’t want to tell them what to think, we want to teach them how to think.
