It is important for children to learn they can trust and rely on their caregivers. It is also vital that children have healthy interactions with their caregivers, adults, and peers. Personal-social skills are abilities children must develop to care for themselves (washing hands, using utensils) and interact with others (playing games, understanding feelings of others). Personal development is about how children understand themselves and what they can do. Social development includes how children understand themselves in relation to their interactions with others. Providing opportunities for your child to practice these skills is important as they develop and grow.
