Don’t let your child make these problem-solving mistakes
Learning how to solve problems is as important in life as it is in the classroom. But learning how NOT to solve them is also key. Teach your child not to deny or ignore problems (they often get worse!). Getting mad doesn’t help either. The sooner your child gets over being mad, the more time she has to solve the problem. Tell her not to worry about making a mistake—success is often built on them.
