Social and emotional development are an important part of kindergarten. In many ways, they're even more important than academic skills. You can promote socialization by letting your child interact with adults and peers, beginning at a very early age. Preschool children learn through imitation. So in teaching social skills, your actions will definitely speak louder than your words; it's up to you to set a good example. It's also important to monitor your child's emotional progress. Parents should help children learn to identify and express their feelings. One helpful exercise is to look at pictures of people in different emotional states, and discuss the photos. A well-socialized child will be able to voice his or her feelings,and recognize other people's feelings. Other characteristics include a willingness to share; knowledge of right and wrong; and respect for other people's property. Without adequate socialization, a child will have trouble keeping friends and getting along with others throughout their life. For this reason, you'll want to pay special attention to your child's social and emotional development. To find out more, visit your library or bookstore for current material on this subject.
