Kindergarten also presents students with a whole new world of social interactions. Kindergarteners have very different levels of social skills. Some children are social butterflies—others are quiet and reserved. For all children, kindergarten is a new adventure, and it usually takes a while for most to feel comfortable in this new environment. There are a number of things you can do to help your child build his/her social skills. These things don’t take much time, and they are easy for any parent to do.
