On this episode, Angela and Kristin discuss yet another important skill under the executive functioning umbrella, flexible thinking. They talk about the importance of developing this skill to work with others, keep our cool when it counts, and adapt to new situations- all things that are important now and for the future. From modeling appropriate behavior, creating opportunities to try new things, rewarding flexible thinking, playing logic and strategy games, and more, there are plenty of ways to support your child in this area.
