How to Support Social Development in Young Children
A child’s social skills are a compelling predictor of his/her future success both in and out of school. Like any developing skill, social skills require support, practice and repetition. The desired behaviours are learned and taught through a variety of accumulating experiences stemming from the earliest years of childhood, between birth and age 6, when children grow and develop faster than during any other stage in their lives.
Children rely heavily on adults and other caregivers to help them acquire social skills and establish pathways for meaningful learning.
Whether you’re a parent or an educator, these strategies will help you to promote social development in your children or students, while helping them learn to use their own minds.
