Skill #1 – Focus and Self Control. Cognitive Flexibility: is at work when you understand a problem from your own and another’s differing points of view (perspective) – being able to flexibly switch perspectives or the focus of attention, and flexibly adjust to changed demands or priorities. (P.18)
Action 2: Weave these skills (focus and self-control) into everyday activities in fun and playful ways – no drills, “teaching” or expensive games or toys needed. (P.42)
