Kids are constantly learning new things—from using the potty to tying their shoes to tackling a math problem—and, as we all know, learning is hard. Sometimes, the frustration of not-knowing-yet leads kids to “I can't do it!" In this week's episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about how to help a child through these moments with actionable strategies and scripts. (Hint: It's all about building up a kid's frustration tolerance, not solving the problem for them).
