How Kids Solve Problems Age 1 to 2

HOW CHILDREN SOLVE PROBLEMS


Children this age are very sensory-oriented. They solve problems
by interacting with all of their senses simultaneously. They also
learn by imitating. One-year-olds are highly curious and want to
explore everything. Two-year-olds assert their independence.
Children at this age have short attention spans.

WAYS TO RESPOND

Give children age-appropriate items to touch, smell, taste and
listen to. Prepare the room so that children can move freely to
learn and solve problems. Allow children to solve their own
problems by giving them choices. Don’t say “no” all the time. Model
problem-solving techniques for children to imitate. For example, if
two children want the same toy, have them choose to take turns or
play with similar toys. Maintain the same routine but vary the
activities.

AGE: 1 to 2 years
