5 tips to build social and emotional skills in your children

Table of Contents

    Children have an impressionable mind. Everything that happens around them leaves deep imprints on their mind. Their social and emotional health plays an important role in their growth and development.

    They need socio-emotional skills to help them manage their emotions, establish connections with others, practice kindness, gain confidence, manage stress, and resolve conflicts.

    In addition, socio-emotional skills allow children to have a unique perspective towards things, leading to a positive attitude. Therefore, as responsible parents, you should pay attention to the socio-emotional growth of your children to ensure their overall development.

    Your small efforts can contribute immensely towards the better future of your children.

    Few simple ways in which you can build social and emotional skills in your children are -

    1. Let books be their best friends: Books help children in widening their imagination. They allow children to visualize vivid images, experience various emotions, and understand the thoughts and feelings of others. Therefore, please encourage your children to involve actively with the book and adopt its teaching in their lives.
    2. Acknowledge their good deeds: Acknowledgments and compliments boost confidence even in adults. So when you consider it your duty to scold your children for a mistake, it is also your responsibility to reward them for their good habits. When you see them engaging in acts of kindness, let them know that they are doing a good thing. It will encourage them to do such activities more often.
    3. Show respect and affection: Children readily absorb the characteristics of the adults around them. If you respect them, they will reciprocate that in their relationship with others. Listening to them patiently, solving their queries, giving them affection, spending time with them, and making them feel loved are different ways to show your respect towards them.
    4. Teach them about self-love: Self-love is the aspect of growth that parents often fail to nurture. It is important to teach them kindness but not at the cost of hurting themselves. You should ensure that your children know how to practice self-love. It will help them get through many difficult situations in life. Give them reminders that self-care and being kind towards themselves is as important as doing it for others. Use daily experiences to help them learn the importance of self-love.
    5. Promote social networking: Children learn better when it comes from their peers. Learning that happens in fun and games is more powerful than the one that happens when taught intentionally. When you allow children to make more friends, they learn the art of connecting with people. There are many things that a child learns when he is in a social setting. You should keep a check on their social behavior and should allow them to learn from their mistakes.
