Nurturing Connections: Building Healthy Relationships
In this third installment, we delve into the importance of building and maintaining healthy relationships during the school year. Positive connections with peers, teachers, and family members contribute significantly to a student’s mental and emotional well-being.
Fostering Social Skills:
Encourage your child to develop strong social skills by engaging in group activities, clubs, or volunteering. Building a supportive network of friends can help combat feelings of isolation.
Open Parent-Child Communication:
Parents play a vital role in their child’s emotional development. Maintain open lines of communication, actively listen, and show empathy when discussing their school experiences and challenges. Daily check ins can keep you on top of your child’s academics, but also can keep you in the know about their friendships.
