This interactive manual is based on the highly acclaimed I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) approach for use in schools, described on page 19. The workbook stands alone as a practical parenting manual and also serves as the ideal ICPS parent involvement component. Educators can use the workbook with parents to help reinforce ICPS classroom lessons at home. The workbook is divided into two sections of fun-to-do, hands-on activities: Parent/Child Situations and Child/Child Situations. Packed with dozens of activities, the workbook's pages invite parents and children as young as age four to play games, to draw, and to color the reproducible illustrations. And while children are having fun, they will also be learning ICPS thinking skills. Crayons and pencils are the only materials needed to complete the activities. Children learn how to think, not what to think. They learn to decide on solutions based on consequences. They learn to negotiate for what they want and to cope with frustration when they can't have what they want. And they learn to understand their own as well as others' feelings.
