Not every child has “think through” skills starting school. Some children need help developing these skills. The tool below outlines four ways you can help your child stop and think through decisions. You can also start answering questions and requests with questions! For example, “Mom, I’m thirsty.” Answer: “Hmmm.. what should we do when we’re thirsty?” or “Dad, this isn’t working!” Answer: “What have you tried already? What happened?”
