Developing Social and Emotional Skills

Monday

Play a game or do a jigsaw with someone you live with that encourages turn taking.

It is important to teach children that they won't always win and to say well done or clap anyone who does win.

If your child has not won the game and is upset this is a normal response and an important part of learning.  Encourage them to come and do something that distracts them and let them know that you enjoyed playing with them and would like to play the game again another time.  You never know what will happen next time.

If your child wins the game, say well done and move on.  If they boast about winning for a prolonged time encourage them to move on to change the subject, as this could upset other children.  This is also an important part of their development- taking into account others feelings.
