Preschoolers: Social and Emotional Development

Resource Type

Video - Parent


"In this tape the preschool child moves into a new stage of initiative. New activities are attacked with energy and eagerness. The child is curious and inquisitive, constantly trying to find out what he can accomplish. As he experiences his new powers, he is also subject to strong emotions and fears. Especially troubling may be the prospect of separation from his parents. Friends become important during this stage of development. In order to be a friend to others, the child must learn to share, to cooperate, and to resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner. Parents and teachers help the child develop these social skills by providing an environment in which children have the freedom to explore. They help the child develop self-control by imposing reasonable limits and being available to help when needed." -Child Development Media, Inc.
