The Main Types Of Skills Your Child Needs

+.jpeg
Parents are always keen for their children to improve as much as possible, and this is something that can b surprisingly difficult to get right. But if you want your child to do as well as possible in their early life, and so their later life, you might want to think about helping them to develop those skills which are going to be most important. Knowing which are most important can be a challenge in itself, but with a little forethought, you can soon discover which areas you should be encouraging in your children. With that in mind, let’s take a look at which areas you should focus on first and foremost so that you can expect to bring up more fully rounded children.


Social

It is difficult to say which skills are most important of all, as they are all important in their own way, but allowing your children to develop strong social skills is probably up there with the most important. Having good social skills enables your children to communicate with others in a way which is healthy and positive. This ability itself goes on to affect many other areas of life in a similar fashion, so by developing these skills, you will be helping your child to also improve their life in many other ways. The best way to encourage your children to develop their social skills is to allow them the chance to actually practice those skills. This means giving them plenty of opportunities to engage with other children their age, and even with adults whom you trust if you feel that that is necessary too.

Language

Being able to communicate with other people is not only something which comes under the umbrella of social skills but language skills as well. Your child will benefit greatly from being able to communicate in a strong and engaging way with others, and language is the tool which allows them to do just that. Fortunately, most educational systems now and pretty well focussed on language, but you still might decide that you should help this along with a little if you want to give your child that extra push. If you take a look at the Effortless English blog, you will find some advice on how to help your child improve their English speaking and listening skills. These skills will have so many ongoing benefits that there is no point in not attending to them as early as possible, so make sure you do.


Personal

As well as the above, you might also agree that it is important to allow your child to develop certain personal skills as well. These can be many different things, but one of the most important aspects of personal skills is hygiene. Being hygienic is important as it ensures that your child stays healthy as much as possible. Therefore, be sure to teach them well about how to be hygienic in daily life - it really will make a world of difference.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
