How to Raise Flexible Thinkers

 

Does your child “melt-down” when you ask him or her to complete a task?  Is the battle becoming overwhelming?  Perhaps your child needs to be encouraged to think flexibly.

Child psychologist, Dr. Todd Cartmell, in an article for Focus on the Family Magazine (Dec 2017/Jan 2018), encourages parents to help their children acquire the skill of flexible thinking; “the ability to view life from another point of view. This skill allows children to cognitively flex when life’s circumstances don’t go the way they had hoped.”
