Help Develop Your Child’s Social Skills

Explore different options with your child. Any youth club or group can help children develop good social skills. Whether a club is learning your child how to kick a ball, do art, or play an instrument, kids can improve on their communication skills through various group activities. They learn to read social cues, express their opinions, and learn from the sharing of experiences with others.


Groups and clubs are designed for learners and can offer many benefits. They help kids make friends and practice social skills with both adults and peers. They teach children new skills and allow them to pursue a favorite hobby or activity. They foster feelings of competence and pride to boost kids’ confidence and self-esteem. Some children join clubs to serve the community or explore their spiritual needs. Others prefer the spirit of competition that comes from sports. When looking for a club for addressing the specific needs of your child, consider what your child hopes to get out of the experience and the various types of organizations available.

Music and Arts

Join a library or start a kid’s book club, choose a book to read and discuss it as a group once a week.

A positive, well-behaved learner who can maintain friendships, is able to meaningfully cooperate with others, and willing to follow rules, will ultimately perform better academically. A peaceful, kind and respectful environment helps to encourage brain development amongst learners, while at the same time enhancing their social interaction capabilities. SEL promotes positive development and reduces problematic behaviors. A learner’s academic achievements improve as they learn to manage stress, cultivate a positive outlook, and have a better attitude toward themselves and others.
