How do you encourage a youngster to to not give up when something seems hopeless to them.
  Ben was tying his own laces for a few days now he seems to not be able to do it so I said just keep trying, but he does not  want to . How to help without taking over or helping him feel helpless. HMM

    One thing that my second graders respond to is a sense of efficacy and autonomy. Catch him trying to do it on his own and make a celebration of it. And there's always the analogy of the bunny ears.
