5 Tips to Teach Children Social-Emotional Developmental Milestones

Social-emotional skills are the capabilities of a child to understand and manage his/her emotions. These skills include self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and proactivity. The faster your child develops these skills, the better equipped he will be to navigate challenges as they shape their ability to build positive relationships and navigate various social situations.

Children with social-emotional skills know how to respond appropriately. They can navigate difficult situations with ease and can express their emotions healthily.

To help your child develop these social-emotional skills, the most important thing parents can do is spend time with them. Whether it’s playing, reading, or watching favourite shows, spending time with your child will help you build trust, understanding, and love. You can use these opportunities to teach your child about their feelings and requirements. Ask your child questions about how they feel. Ask your child questions about how they feel. Is he/she sad? Happy? Angry? Excited? Playful?

Respect your child’s feelings. Instead of using phrases like: “You’re okay”, “Brush it off”, or “Calm Down” in an intense situation, use “I understand that it’s tough”, “Tell me all about it”, or “It’s okay to be upset” to validate your child’s emotions.

Pursue your child’s interests and build on them. Whether it’s participating in a favourite sport, playing an instrument they like, or being part of a club they’re interested in, this is the first step towards building social interaction skills in early childhood.

Teach them to be Empathetic. Teaching children to put themselves in others’ shoes and understand how someone else might feel is a fundamental social-emotional skill. Empathy helps children develop kindness, compassion, and the ability to form meaningful connections with others.

Seek professional help. Seek help from the best child psychologists at Mom’s Belief to promote social interaction skills that will help your child build a better future for themselves.

With persistence and correct application of strategies and tools, your child can learn age-appropriate social/ emotional developmental milestones.
