Books Info:

Raising a Thinking Child Workbook free pdf An evidence-based parenting workbook based on the highly acclaimed I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) violence prevention program for children. This unique workbook, available in English or Spanish, serves as the ideal ICPS parent involvement component but also stands alone as an essential parent resource for dealing with typical parent-child and child-child difficulties. Workbook pages are filled with dozens of inviting activities that help parents guide and children ages 4-7 to play games and color as they learn develop cognitive skills and social-emotional awareness. Situations include everything from a child's wanting attention while the parent is busy to teasing and fighting over toys to going to bed on time. The workbook also covers many positive situations-helping with household chores, sharing, comforting a hurt friend, and more. By engaging in these activities and using a special kind of problem-solving talk called ICPS dialoguing, parents help children learn how to think, not what to think. With practice, children learn to think about what they do and why they do it, choose solutions based on consequences, negotiate for what they want, cope with frustration, and understand their own and others' feelings.
