Making decisions is hard. Yet somehow, most of us seem to muddle through the process. But how can we support children whose decisions lead them to negative outcomes? This week we review research related to teaching choice making, problem solving, and all kinds of big decision making, helping children move from being told what to do to deciding for themselves.
