Preschool age children have difficulties in remembering lists of information such as directions, lists of numbers, or the proper procedure of how to to do something. The difficulty derives from their low level of skill to use memory strategies. Memory strategies are not only used by children, but adults as well. They are deliberate mental activities that improve the chances of remembering. Preschool age children have difficulty holding onto pieces of information and applying a strategy at the same time. Preschoolers are more inclined to remember repeated events such as preschool or dinner routines. A script is a general description of what occurs and when it occurs in a particular situation. As a child's age increases, their scripts grow as well in terms of number of mental entries in a sequence. Scripts support children's efforts at planning by helping them represent sequences of actions that lead to desired goals. Talking with your child on an eye level about his or her's own desires can allow parents to possibly understand their reasoning for wanting something in particular or acting in a certain way.
