Social skills development begins at home.

Parenting Technique 43 – Help your child build outer social skills by focusing on your own inner family relationships.

Social is defined by Webster’s New World Dictionary as “of or having to do with human beings in their living together” (p. 560). No one lives in isolation. Moreover, people are together as part of all kinds of social groupings—at home, at work, and in friendship. As you continue to set up social opportunities for your child with other children, always remember that you and all the other extended members of your family play the biggest role in social skills development. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all have their own special ways of interacting with a child that is both loving and instructive. No matter who or what these people are like; they, each in their own special way, are the major force behind preparing your little one for the outside world.

Constructive Parenting…

How you treat a child is how a child will learn to treat others. The word “discipline” comes from the Latin word “disciplina” that means teaching. As you continue to guide and support your child in a loving way, he or she will continue to thrive.
