Your Child's Social Emotional Health
Social emotional development is a child's ability to understand the feelings of others, control their own feelings and behaviors and get along with peers. It provides them with a sense of who they are in the world and teaches them how to establish quality relationships with others. Here's some more information how you can help your child develop social emotional skills as they grow.
