How do successful people deal with problems? They solve them! Instead of evading, being overwhelmed or immobilized by difficulties, resilient people face these straight on, learning from mistakes, solving problems and using negative experiences to propel themselves onward to success. Effective problem solving helps us “make lemonade out of lemons”, using the different resources we have to manipulate the environment and situation to move forward and succeed in our identified goals.
Problem solving is a skill that span across academics, interpersonal interactions, leisure activities, competitive sports and all parts of life. Help your child gain analytic skills and flexible thinking to overcome problems effectively and confidently.
“I Can Overcome Problems” is workshop that builds your child’s realistic optimism and resilience. Your child will learn to approach challenges by learning to carefully analyse problems and solve problems in many creative ways.
Strengthen your child’s (5yo-9yo) creative problem-solving skills through perspective-taking, trial and error and dramatic play. At this age, children are more independent in trying to solve their own problems. However, due to lack of real life experiences, they are still learning about how things, people and the world works and need to be encouraged to assertively ask for and accept help. Safety awareness is important at this age. Participation of their caregivers, teachers and/or parents is recommended
