One of the reasons children get frustrated so easily when confronted with a new problem or challenge isn’t as much that it looks difficult, but because they just feel as though they don’t have a method devised to solve it. When an adult sees a new problem they have generally already put in place a system or checklist that they use to pick apart a problem that is new to them. Children have no mechanism in place for this, so if a problem looks dissimilar to ones they have seen they tend to want to shut it out. Pattern Recognition work helps to develop these problem solving systems.
