Raising a Thinking Child Program

RAISING A THINKING CHILD Program offered by Family Living Program

Words that parents and caregivers use with children help children think and independently solve problems. Children need to practice thinking of alternatives and developing their problem solving skills. Parents of children ages 4-7 and other caregivers will be introduced to these skills at a Raising a Thinking Child Workshop.

Parents and other caregivers can develop and practice these skills at the Raising a Thinking Child Workshop.

Participants will learn about these tools:

  • The “I Can Problem Solve” discipline ladder
  • Using word pairs to build a vocabulary for problem solving
  • Giving children skills to solve problems taking into account their own and other’s feelings
