Helping Your Child Develop their Problem Solving Skills


Managing problem-solving skills can be a fun way to test your child’s ability to handle things in their own way, as well as building their resilience. 

From the moment they start being able to talk and interact with things around them, your child should have the freedom to build their problem-solving skills.


To help your child with their problem-solving skills, here are some ways to help from this private school in Surrey.

See how your child picks things up in their own way

At a young age, it can feel really difficult to feel like you shouldn’t jump in and direct your child. You should however make it so that they can handle what they can before you intervene. If you dive in too early it can mean that your child is going to be more reliant on you as opposed to handling the problems themselves. Take a step back and see how they get on, and if required you can point them in the right direction.

Set up problems in a controlled area

To test a toddler’s skills, most of the time you will have to find ways to help them figure out problems in a controlled environment. Free play is a good way to have problems set up and allow your child to figure out what they can do next. 

In giving them a space to learn freely they get the opportunity to find what problems they can solve and what they need a bit more help with.

Identify strengths and weaknesses

A lot of life is spent solving different problems and knowing what to do when they arise. All of us have our own strengths and weaknesses, which is important for a child to realise early on to help with their development. When your child grows a bit older you’ll be able to pinpoint the areas they need more support.
