Big Picture 3: Those Who Think Together, Stay Strong Together

You might be great at problem solving but the true test of executive function proficiency is not just helping someone get their car out of a ditch, but applying those same skills and principles to help yourself and get your own car out of a ditch. The process of self-directed learning is gradual and insidious where the individual gathers knowledge through experiential learning and subconsciously assimilates and integrates ideas to bounce back.

In this big-picture episode, Sucheta discusses how parents can guide children to develop the self-directed thinking, which has a self-help component to it, so that they can survive everyday roadblocks, set-backs and disappointments and “MacGyver” through everyday problems.
