Is your child interested in your keys? While you watch, offer them a turn to try and open doors with them. Can they fit the key in the door? Talk with them about what they’re doing like: “You’re turning the key but the door won’t open. What else should we try”

Offering your child chances to solve problems builds their independence, encourages them to follow their interests, and helps them find answers to questions on their own. Your support, with your words and actions, motivates them to keep trying even when things are hard.
