Being able to form satisfying relationships is an essential life skill, but it is a skill that must be learned. It enables people to feel a sense of belonging in any group and is closely linked to confidence, self-esteem and emotional well-being. Having the ability to initiate and maintain satisfying relationships with others, especially peers, is know as social competence.
Many children find it difficult to develop social competence, so teachers and parents have an important role to play in assisting children to learn these skills. This practical handbook offers ideas and strategies to help children develop the self-esteem and confidence they need to establish satisfying relationships and deal with inappropriate behaviour from others. Ages 4-7.
