Instilling problem-solving skills in children at a young age is valuable. Encourage their critical thinking by engaging in activities that challenge them, like puzzles, riddles, or brainteasers. Encourage them to find solutions independently, offering guidance when needed. Foster a supportive environment where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities. Encouraging creativity and asking open-ended questions can also help. Model problem-solving behaviors by discussing how you tackle problems in your daily life. Celebrate their efforts and successes, reinforcing their confidence in their problem-solving abilities.
