This useful handout provides tips for creating “predictable, nurturing environment(s),” supporting the development of social skills, and “recognizing and talking about emotions” for three age groups: infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. It also includes suggestions for “encouraging positive behaviors and using positive discipline practices” for toddlers and preschoolers.
The suggestions provided are grounded in the field’s ever-expanding knowledge base regarding “social interaction, emotional awareness, and self-regulation” in early childhood. The handout emphasizes the idea that “research shows . . . a strong social and emotional foundation . . . powerfully impacts children’s later positive attitudes and behaviors, academic performance, career path, and adult health outcomes.” It concludes with several profound statements “from a young child’s perspective” that you might find suitable for framing.
