Do you think technology is helping or harming children’s development? It’s long been proven that healthy social skills are born from healthy face-to-face interactions. For those children in their formative years, these interactions allow for understanding and interpreting non-verbal skills, forming relations with others and learning empathy. But, the amount of time people are spending on digital screens is beginning to affect the way social skills are being taught and understood, especially for younger children.
Some children are naturally sociable while others need to be encouraged/trained to socialize. The art of socializing isn’t, however, mastered in a single day. Teaching your kids to communicate well is the first step to helping them be friendly human beings. Luke Baker, a Sydney based writer, outlines some of the ways in which you can encourage your kids to be sociable.
