Getting to know others – developing social skills among children


We all want our children to be comfortable in the world. For this you have to be able to connect to others and in acceptable social situations.

So what is Speech Pathologist under "social skills"?

Basically, this means that we use accepted communication protocols that are socially related to others.

Every society develops its own rules of what is acceptable and what is not. We seem to be "hard-wired" in some ways to make communication more effective. We were born with the basic skills to help you get in touch with others.

There is much more communication than words. Effective social skills take advantage of our other communication skills. In our society, social skills include games, conflict resolution, apology, negotiations, cooperation with others, friendship development and coping with other people's bad behaviors.

And we expect that even very young children will somehow be able to use these skills.

Why so many children have difficulties in social skills?

There are a number of main reasons why some children find it difficult to master the skills they have, and this may include bright and intelligent children.

For example, in the absence of executive function or in ADHD, children have difficulty in developing the capabilities of the brain frontal lobe. This includes some aspects of social skills. They can not even recognize social problems when they occur. Some children find it difficult to understand the perspective of other people and see that other people can represent other perspectives on their own.

Other children do not have language skills to negotiate or solve difficulties. They feel they are not listening to them. Language development may have difficulties that result in poor social skills.

In some cases, bad social behavior could be modeled or reinforced, so children imitate what they have seen or rewarded. However, this is not necessarily the case. Speaking as a pathologist I have seen many children from families where high-level social skills were modeled, taught and expected – but the child has a difficult understanding or use.

Why do children need well-developed social skills?

It is obvious that behavior must be acceptable to society. And children should be able to attend school and other groups to enjoy the benefits and benefits that communities provide (such as learning opportunities and leisure activities).

Adopting others and creating and maintaining friendship is key to your child's development. Self-knowledge and self-confidence follow. Good social skills also help the development of language as the children open practical opportunities during conversation and play. Listening and problem-solving skills are also improved.

And if a child learns to use good social skills they will be better able to avoid antisocial behavior and all negative outcomes and to cope better with the inappropriate or injurious behavior of their counterparts from time to time. They are more likely to be able to avoid aggression, retreat and frustration. Children with good social skills are more likely to become aware of and less likely to use appropriate awareness-raising techniques.
