Check Out Our January ParentTip on Helping Your Child Get Along with Others!

Your child’s social and emotional development – how your child gets along with others, handles emotions, and expresses thoughts and feelings – is one of the biggest signs of how ready he is to start school. These are all ways of building your child’s social and emotional readiness for school. Every day, you as a parent can help your child grow: Sing to your infant. Tickle him if he likes it. Repeat the things that make him smile and laugh. Include your toddler in family conversations, and in phone conversations with relatives, to help her learn how to talk with grownups.  Give your preschooler chances to play, both alone and with others. Make arrangements for safe playtime with other children.  Please click here  to learn more about our January ParentTip on Helping Your Child Get Along with Others!
