Life presents us all with challenges at times, and children, unfortunately, are not exempt. In this context, the old adage that prevention is better than cure is indeed relevant. Look at building your own story ideas as to how a child may handle a challenging time, not only in the present, but also in preparation for the possibility of such challenges in the future.

■ Describe a problem with which the child might identify.
■ Explore the resources needed to cope with current or future challenging times.
■ Reach a resolution that is realistic and pragmatic.
