Skill 1: Working with others
Encourage and praise children for positive social interactions and behaviours.
- Share and take turns?
- Praise and encourage others?
- Listen to others and share their ideas?
Positive reinforcement from parents/guardians and adults builds confidence in children and morale in their family team during activities. Praising the behaviours of children instead of just their achievements help develop positive attitudes within children.
"We are seeing not only an increase in weekly exercise at home, but also greater social interaction between parents and children." Paul Naylor, Gaskell Community Primary School
