Parents job is to help the child move from:
– What’s the worst thing that can happen in this situation?
– What’s the most likely thing that can happen in this situation?
Parents could employ Socratic questioning of the child to help them problem-solve:
– What’s the worst that can happen?
– How likely is this to happen?
– What can I do to cope with this?
– What is my goal in this situation?
