Focusing on solutions is one of the primary goals of Positive Discipline, and children are great at focusing on solutions when they are taught the skills and are allowed to practice them. The wheel of choice is a great tool to teach children problem solving skills. This tool looks like a pie chart, with 4-8 pieces (depending on your child’s age) that have ideas or solutions for what to do in a given situation. When faced with a challenge, a child can simply look at the chart and pick the solution that works for him.
There are many ways to use the wheel of choice. You can use it to teach children healthy coping strategies, conflict resolution, chores, etc.
