Very early on, babies start communicating with others by smiling, touching or babbling.
This natural predisposition will help them to play with other children, which is essential for their development.
Playing with others is the beginning of early socialization. Children will:
- learn to share and express their feelings with words;
- learn social skills such as collaboration and cooperation;
- develop positive relationships with their peers.
Positive relationships will help children to deal with strong emotions and protect them against depression, loneliness or school dropout in the teen years.
