Every single day brings us a new set of problems which we need to find the best way to solve – consequently, we need to be breaking down problems. The process must fit the problem or we will not solve it at all. Problems are like jigsaw puzzles that are broken down. Each smaller problem is like a piece of jigsaw puzzle that will either give a clearer solution or answer the big problem.
What are the pieces of your puzzle?
Do you ever feel like the problem is too big for you to overcome? Nonsense. It seems like the universe never runs out of solutions, you just gotta find which one fits the problem.
Therefore, whenever you are struggling with a big problem, it is always better to break down problems into smaller pieces to lessen stress and make it more manageable.
Why break down problems?
Just like in coding, children will learn how to break down problems into smaller units. The key to easier coding and programming is dividing the problem into smaller and more manageable parts. The problems are arranged from the simplest to the most complex unit.
Breaking down problems
In our everyday lives, we encounter series of problems. At times, it even seems like it floods. Sometimes dealing with our children almost seems to be a problem, especially when we are running out of time already. Therefore, establishing routines for them to follow lessens the hassle. One routine that can easily be established is the morning routine of getting ready and going to school – which needs to be done almost every day. Also, don’t forget your child will need to shower! Afterwards, he will get ready for breakfast, then he will eat breakfast. next, he will brush his teeth and put on his uniform. Finally, he will get his bag and hooray! Ready for school!
Alternatively, another good routine to help understand deconstruction is when brushing his teeth. Therefore, you should try the following steps:
1. Get brush and toothbrush
2. Take lid off
3. Squeeze onto brush
4. Brush the teeth properly
6. Put everything away
In conclusion, big problems can be easy when you know how to manage them right. So, ever be afraid to break down things. Not all things that get broken are useless because at times, it is the key that clears up the path. Therefore, you just have to break down the problem into bits and build a solution out of the bits in order for you to find the answer – hence, this is the very reason you are solving it.
