Teaching your Child Conversations that Help Early Socialisation

As your child grows gradually, he or she achieves developmental milestones. As your child has grown up, you can plan to take him or her to park, shopping, party or a friend’s house.

However, you may be little concerned that whether your child will be able to socialise at these places.

Don’t worry! Here are a few tips to train your child in conversations that help in early socialisation:

Teach Greetings: Whenever you meet your relatives or friends, greet them and encourage your child to greet people too. For example, teach your child to say ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’ when he or she meets someone; teach to say ‘Good Bye’ when you are leaving the place.

Play different games at home to teach your child greetings and socialisation. Peek-a-boo is a good option.

Shake Hands: You can also educate your kid how to shake hands for greeting people. This will increase his or her confidence and help in early socialisation.

Imitate Party: Before going for a party, you can imitate a party at home and teach your child the way he or she has to behave at party. For example, if you are going to a birthday party, train your child to say birthday wishes or birthday song, etc.

Teach Etiquettes: Teach your child to say ‘thank you’ if someone gives gift or chocolate. If he or she makes mistake(s), teach him or her to say ‘sorry’ immediately.

Fix Play Date: Invite your child’s friends at home on a play date and keep them busy in conversations, which will help your child to socialise easily.
