November News from our Counselor

Counselor's Corner
It is important to teach children decision-making skills every day. Here are some suggestions for helping your child learn how to make good choices:
* Teach by example. Children see everything we do. Model good decision making skills by including them in decision-making process as you are going through it.
* Start them off with a few options. Too many choices can be overwhelming to a child. Let them begin with small decisions. For example, offering if they would like PB&J or a Tuna sandwich in their lunch. Allowing kids to practice making small decisions will help build critical decision making skills in the future.
* Teach a decision-making formula. 1. Define the problem. 2. Explore the choices 3. Understand consequences. 3. Make a decision 4. Learn from the decision.
* Don't solve their problems. Allow your child to make their own decisions.
* Be there before they decide. Be a sounding board for your child as they are learning the decision making process.
