As a professional, there might be times when you need to raise concerns with parents about a child’s behaviour, wellbeing or development.

A problem-solving approach will help you and parents work together to address concerns. This approach involves:

  • identifying the problem
  • brainstorming as many solutions as possible
  • jointly evaluating the pros and cons
  • deciding on a solution to try
  • putting the solution into action
  • reviewing the solution after a period of time.

One of the keys to this approach is talking about concerns when they come up. Problems usually don’t go away by themselves. And if you let problems build up, they might be more and more difficult to address.
