Social Skills (Human Skills)
Having good social skills enables children to interact with interesting people and helps them to make a good and lasting first impressions. Socialising can be daunting for some children. Being able to demonstrate positive social/human skills includes showing confidence in ourselves, being considerate and treating others with respect. Being at ease with others and knowing how to behave in company is so important for children, helping them to further their goals, for instance when seeking work experience.
Combining social skills and other human skills, for example confidence boosting does wonders for children's self-esteem. The better we feel about ourselves, the better we will become.
Social skills are key to children's futures
As children mature into young adults, the social skills they need become more complicated than when they were younger. For example, when faced with growing peer pressure or becoming involved in group activities outside the home. Today, more than ever, children need to be able to form meaningful connections with others.
