The One Thing You Shouldn’t Be For Your Child

 

Moms wear a lot of hats for their kids: cook, chauffer, party planner, the list is endless.  But, the hat we need to wear less often is that of problem solver.  Sure, we can guide our children and offer comfort when they’re struggling, but the next time they start whining or saying something is impossible, delegate the job of problem solving to them.  Ask them what they should do about it.  Tell them to come up with at least one solution.  Let them think through the problem before you step in.  Those are some of the ideas to help you break the problem solver habit in our 14-Day Problem Solver Challenge­.
