Original Question by Laurensmyprincess--posted March 06,2006: My question is this. The book and the approach around collabrative problem solving seems geared more for an older child who can understand and articulate. My difficult child is not yet 4. She will be 4 in June. Can I modify these techniques so that an almost 4 year old will understand?? Some of it sounds like is is more suited for an older child. Anyone try it with a child so young? Any advice? Thanks.
