What you can do at home to help develop the social and emotional skills of your preschool kids

  • When they are feeling down, sit down with your child and discuss the feelings and events that made them feel certain way: ask what happened over the course of their day and how they felt about what happened. Also, be sure to talk about future events: what they will do next and how they will act.
  • Brainstorm problem-solving strategies with your child. For example: you can read interactive books with them, such as Twiggle the Turtle, where turtle Twiggle goes inside his shell when he gets upset, takes a deep breath, and then says what bothers him and how it makes him feel. You can model this problem-solving strategy with your child too. Encourage your child to use these tricks too to gain self-control (by crossing their arms instead of hitting impulsively, taking a breath to calm themselves down, and then using words to describe how they feel instead of crying).
  • Practice the age-old advice: read, read, and read to your child, and have them read to you. Interactive reading is crucial to language development.
