Tips for Helping Your Child Develop their Social Skills*

If you are wondering how your child can continue to improve their social skills then there are many approaches you could explore that will help them continually develop their confidence. Here are some top tips.

Talk to your child often
Just having general conversations will get your child talking and learning to be sociable in a safe environment. That helps your child a lot with their understanding of how to make their own choices, develop their own opinions and use critical thinking to come up with good responses. Over time this will improve exponentially and you will be able to see it in how your child develops their confidence.

Get them involved in team activities
A lot of team and group activities will revolve around how your child communicates and makes effective decisions for the team. It also means that your child has a chance to offer their own viewpoints - in a lot of scenarios your child’s opinion might actually be the deciding factor in helping a team.

Lots of team activities can be found in your child’s school. This private school in Plymouth has a lot of extra-curricular activities that children can pursue at any time. These can vary from football or hockey - predominantly team-based sports - to art societies, school choirs or debating clubs.

Help your child find their passion
When you are able to talk about what interests you the most you will find that your child is a lot more relaxed and happy to talk about what makes them happy. This is where developing your child’s passions can make them feel more comfortable in themselves and boost their self-esteem. Finding a child’s passion can help them get out of their shell and talk to other people that also enjoy the same things as them. This is a sure-fire way for them to make new friends as well, and form strong relationships with others.

So there are many ways you can help your child learn to be social and explore themselves. But there will always be opportunities for them to develop their communication skills even further as they get out of their comfort zone and find hobbies and activities to enjoy. You’d be surprised what your child will learn about themselves through regular socialising
