What's the Problem?: A Story Teaching Problem Solving (Executive FUNction Book 6) Kindle Edition
Blake wants to sell his brother, Braden, to another family. Savannah wants to fight Mary over an insult. Braden sooo wants to sneak out of class to play kickball.
The characters in this fast-paced story face conundrums that make each of them consider solutions that are inappropriate, ill-advised or irresponsible.
Fortunately, some good old-fashioned fatherly advice coupled with a tried-and-true strategy for solving problems keeps everyone safe and satisfied.
This story introduces and encourages readers to use SODAS (Situation, Options, Disadvantages, Advantages, and Solution) as a way to logically and thoughtfully figure out how to solve any problem, from the silly to the serious.
Award-winning author and school counselor Bryan Smith's teaching style comes through in this insightful tale from his wildly popular Executive FUNction book series. Like the other titles in the series, this book adeptly weaves skill teaching into an amusing storyline to help readers become flexible thinkers, problem solvers and self-managers. Tips for parents and educators are included at the the end of the storybook to help children learn how to become problem-solving pros.

Great Resource for Teaching Problem Solving Skills In this Executive FUNction Series book, kids are introduced to the SODAS steps to problem solving. They are encouraged to identify the problem, come up with options for dealing with the situation, weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and choose one option as the solution. In each of the three given scenarios, the reader sees how kids analyze the problem and identify possible ways to handle it. Since the characters are real kids, some of the options are terrible, but they soon realize the disadvantages of these bad ideas. The SODAS process is described in a positive way that works in action. When good problem-solving skills are not modeled in the home, kids will react in less than favorable ways. But when they learn the proper way to deal with these situations, they will be successful at home and school. And these skills will help them long beyond their school years. I highly recommend What's the Problem?. --Alice Berger @ Berger Book Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.
