Problems can be social, physical, or mental. Your child would not tell you about any mischief that happened with him/her if he/she doesn’t know it is a problem. If your child knows what a problem actually is, he/she would definitely react and look for help. There can be several practical activities that can lead a child towards such habits and allow them to identify the right ways of dealing with the problems.

Whenever a child solves any problem or difficult situation, he/she develops the habit of using the brain instead of worrying and getting blank. It later helps them in their games, activities, academics, and different extracurricular activities. Brainstorming is necessary to do anything in daily life. Being a child it is feasible to work on this skill because once a child develops and becomes an adult, it would take a lot to get better.  Preschools have such activities that can be utilized to develop healthy brainstorming in kids.
