Kids Social Skills: Here are 5 things they should learn while they’re young

Example is the best way to teach kids social skills.

As an adult, we don’t even think about things like taking turns and saying thank you. We just do them. We sometimes forget that these things don’t come naturally to kids. They are growing up unprepared to enter relationships, but teaching them basic social skills can change that.

Studio 5 Parenting Contributor Heather Johnson shares the five things all kids should learn at home about social situations.

Teaching them young about social interactions will prepare them for relationships down the road.
