The Basics The following are some of the areas the child should be taught to consider before making decisions of any sort: Teaching the child to have an idea of the desired outcome would be a good point to start from as the child will then learn to try and make the decision that will best contribute to the desired outcome. Having a picture in mind of the desired outcome will also help the child to explore various possibilities until the suitable one is found. Setting about creating various options before the final decision is made will also help the child to learn how to be flexible in the decision making and it will help the child think out of the box and be more adventurous and open to other thought processes. Encouraging the child to seek the advice of others is also another good way of learning how to make decisions especially if the decisions made will eventually affect others too. The child will be taught the value of considering other people’s opinions thus teaching them the vital element of being considerate. Getting others involved will also teach the child how to handle outside input in a diplomatic and respectful way.
