Help Your Kids Develop Better Social Skills

It’s bright and sunny here in Downtown Chicago, however the chill factor still remains! I decided to make the most of the sunshine and spent time outdoors walking along the lake and around the parks. And it was great to see families out with young kids having fun.

So do you have kids? Or know of anyone who has kids? Maybe you’re planning to have some one-day.

I have a 17-year-old daughter and believe me, motherhood IS the toughest, yet the most rewarding job in the world. Yes I know it’s cliché, but it’s true! Although it seems to be getting tougher as the Child grows, because my role as a mother keeps re-shaping itself.

I feel I speak for many parents when I say that we all want our kids to grow into happy, well-adjusted adults. We want to protect and guide them in every way possible so that they can live their lives in a fulfilling, respectful and loving ways.

One of the most common questions I get from parents is how they can help their little people to be more naturally social – you know, the kind of people others gravitate to and for whom making friends comes easily.

My initial response is to emphasize that as parents they don’t worry if their child doesn’t seem to fit into that mold or aren’t winning any popularity contests. Like any other skill, social skills can be learned, and besides that, ‘being social’ or outgoing isn’t the end goal in itself.

What is important, however, is that kids are able to form meaningful bonds with others, can empathize and interact with others appropriately, and have the skills to adapt in uncomfortable situations.

As parents, or a child’s caretaker, we want them to know how to handle interpersonal social situations that involve following directions, holding a proper conversation, listening, giving compliments, proper behavior during transition times, teasing, bullying, or just hanging out with friends. These are basic skills we want all kids to be able to have, and hopefully during their crucial formative years.

In today’s episode of Preet TV – Help Your Kids Develop Better Social Skills– you’ll get to know more about what you can do to help young kids develop the social skills they need for life.

And even if you don’t have kids of your own, I’m sure you’ll be able to use these tips with your nieces and nephews or any other child you may have to interact with.

So Yayy, let’s go play!
