Many times it can be easy as a parent to do everything for your little ones. Because I have 6 kids it’s easier for me to do things for the little ones because I want it done right the first time. That being said when you do things for them all the time it can be hard to teach them to be problem solvers. Toddlers can be difficult little beings but teaching them some basic Problem Solving skills can help them cope when things don’t “go their way”. So check out some tips below:

1.Don’t rush in to help: Rushing in to help can be the first thing you think of when you see a toddler struggling with a problem. However, giving them a few minutes to see if they can figure it out might actually teach them to find the answer to the problems themselves. Giving them a huge life lesson opportunity.

2.Give them opportunities to explore and experiment in an unstructured environment: As parents we try to structure every activity for our kids because it feels like the right and organized thing to do. However, it may take away from their creative spirit. Giving them a toy and having them figure out how to use it is a great way to teach them problem solving skills. Having them see it and figure out how it works can make a world of difference in teaching them problem solving, adventure and courage.

3. Help them understand their emotions:When toddlers can’t figure out an easy solution it can be easy to It is difficult to think clearly when you are very angry or frustrated.  By teaching children to understand and be able to label their emotions, they can then begin to distinguish their emotions from the problem and find workable solutions.

4.Allow them to make mistakes: Everyone makes mistakes so allowing your little ones to make them is crucial. Their toy wont move because it’s backwards, give them a few minutes to figure it out, even if they get frustrated ask them why they think it’s happening. Maybe model why or show them yourself. Then allow them to try it again. Mistakes will happen and giving them room to figure it out will be a huge victory for them when they do figure out the answer.

5.Praise them when they figure it out: Don’t let their successes go unnoticed. Everyone loves praise especially toddlers. Let them know they did well, and even when they don’t give them encouragement to try again.

One fun way to teach your toddler to problem solve is by using the Step2 Disney Pixar Cars 3 Roller Coaster toy. This fun toy made for 2-5 year olds is the perfect way to teach them to problem solve in a creative & exciting way.

    My favorite feature of the cars 3 roller coaster is the step to help shorter children get on it more easily! I once had an older version or different brand roller coaster for my older son, and it was very hard for him to get on!
