Choice is empowering

Choice is empowering. When a student makes the decision about how he’s going to approach a certain task or assignment, he’s taking ownership of the process and is more invested in making it successful. There’s rarely just one way to solve a problem; the key is in finding each student’s best and most efficient way. So when your child is faced with a challenging task or assignment, brainstorm multiple ways of approaching it and then let him choose the path forward. When he feels that he’s in command, he will be more invested and his self-confidence will begin to grow.
