the first of our weekly Positive Parenting blog posts!
Acornkids, we have an absolute passion for children. We love to celebrate your
little ones and share in the experiences as they grow and learn every single
day. So please feel free to comment and share stories of your own below.
To kick off our Positive Parenting blog, I’d like
to tackle a question that pops into every parent’s head (at least once if not a
million times) before taking the next really exciting yet equally terrifying milestone
of ‘Big School’.
“What can I, as a
parent, do to make sure that my kids have the very best education?”
You see, preparing your kids for school is so much
more than having them academically ready. Teachers are here to teach them the
academics, parents are here to teach them that and everything in between!
In fact, there are four main areas of development
that kids need to master before stepping into their first classroom of Big
School. This week, I’d like to focus on the Social Development area.
Social Development works hand-in-hand with
Emotional Development, and this is really just understanding why we’re feeling
like we’re feeling and how to react appropriately. It’s the connection between
our thoughts and emotions with our physical reactions and movements.
So to give your kids the best opportunity to focus
better on their school work, work on developing their social skills with them.
This will empower them to be able to concentrate on their work, comfortably socially
interact with their friends and teachers and also drastically improve their own
self-image and confidence.
Here are 3 really
easy actions that you can put in place right now to help develop your kids' social
1. Define the rules in your house and make sure
that you follow through with consequences if there are any.
2. Create stability through routine by deciding on
and sticking to meal and bed times.
3. Encourage your kids to express their frustration
in a healthy way by helping them talk about what they are feeling and why they
would be feeling that way.
