Discuss how, as a professional, you may be able to
assist children in refining their learning and metacognitive problem-solving strategies. At
what stage in the maturation process do you believe it is most important to address a
child’s learning and problem-solving strategies? Explain your answer
First, your answer depends upon what age children you'll be teaching.
Children learn and develop problem-solving strategies from birth. Here's an example from my own experience.
Logan was born in Vietnam. His mother gave him up for adoption when he was two weeks old. When I met him, he was six months old and had lived in an orphanage since his mother left him. His adoptive mother and I asked the orphanage personnel to describe his personality. They immediately responded that he cried when someone put him down in his crib after holding him. Obviously, Logan had learned that he'd receive more attention if he cried, and had developed that problem-solving strategy to get what he wanted.
