Skill building is learning developmental skills to support a child’s emotional, academic, and social success. It includes developing practical interventions and effective responses for difficult behavior.
The benefits are providing a child with more confidence to take on daily stressors and engage more fully in life. We want to create building blocks for continued success and healthy development. The skills learned at this age can have a lasting impact, setting children up with a balanced mental health foundation.
We work to help kids manage stress, conflict, social situations or not getting what they want. We utilize learning tools to enhance their social or emotional skills. It is the practice of learning to talk so that your kids will listen and learning to listen so that your kids will talk.
We all need skill building at different times in our lives. For children, skill building can help when problems feel unmanageable, when behavior and stress feel overwhelming, and when this distress may be felt within the family.
