Children are like clean sponge. Whatever you impress upon them will be immediately soaked up and grasped and remain with them forever. Children belonging to the age group from 3 to 8 years are very active and eager to understand, analyze, learn and possess the ability to develop various habits. Socializing is an ardent necessity of today’s life style as good associations and contacts enable you to build good base for life and career. Good friends and family is an essential for leading a richly cultured life and hence parents should develop good socializing habits amongst their children too.
Here some ways of enhancing the socializing skills of your child:
- There are some occasions when children do not fit the bill and cannot be taken along. But otherwise, parents should see to it that they are taken regularly out for various receptions, parties, outings and should be encouraged to get introduced, acquainted and mingle with new friends.
- In school too, children should be allowed and motivated to make friends with their class fellows and at times you can invite them at home for special occasions like children’s day, birthday party etc. You should also send your child to other children’s parties. This will give him the taste of socializing and develop in him social etiquettes.
- Children learn a lot by simply observing and hence they should be allowed to visit different celebrations and take active part in various cultural activities in school. Participating in various competitions prepares them to face more crucial challenges and competitions ahead and increase sportsmanship in them.
- While encouraging the child for active participation in social activities, the parents should keep a keen eye on his friends and the company he/she is mingling. Give your child the space to pick up his/her best friends but warn if you find some of them not good enough for friendship. This way they will able to gain understanding of various relationships and types of people living in this world. Slowly on own he/she will understand the difference between good and bad company. This is where you will make the child’s preferences right.
- If your child develops good socializing skills, he/she can develop good and influential contacts in the future that may be helpful in personal and professional life with the communication charm.
- Highly socializing people are more favored in every fraternity and are immensely helpful while lobbying for particular cause or purpose.
- With the world getting smaller and smaller due to e-technology the socializing dimensions and calculations have changed. They have become more far, wide and yet very much within limits.
- Well developed socializing habits also help in reaching people across lengths and breadths of the continents and help in marketing your concepts, art or product to the whole world. Socializing enables you to create a big platform for yourself and reach a bigger market which is not possible if you lead a shrunken isolated life.
Hence keeping the future potential in mind, it is the need of the hour to encourage socializing in children, particularly when children these days are just one or two and mostly brought up in a nuclear family system unlike the traditional joint family ones where the home meant parents, grandparents, uncle aunties and cousins.
