Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child Succeed in School
The Office of Early Childhood Education in NYC produced a brochure which talks about many things parents can do to greatly encourage their children socially and emotionally which will greatly help them throughout their school years. It has often been pointed out that an emotionally supportive environment at home does wonders for any child in school. Here are a few ideas to help support your child both emotionally and socially. It is important that your child learns how to recognize and respond to emotions in healthy ways. Playing games to teach your child to identify these emotions, whether happy, sad, angry, frustrated, etc. is important. Also teaching them what to do when they feel that way can help them in amazing ways as they grow. Other supportive helps such as, teaching your child how to make choices, such as deciding between two types of sandwiches, and helping them know what to expect in their daily schedule will help to build an emotionally supportive environment at home from which they can spring-board into a school setting.
