Practicing Prosocial Skills at Home

The following link to a post by Ann Bailey, Director of the Center for Early Education and Development (CEED) at the University of Minnesota made me think about Robert Fulgham's now classic All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten. A little bit about that book and an excerpt with what he learned may be read in this excerpt.

Dr. Bailey whom I know recently sent me a post she had written about the prosocial skills of gratitude, sympathy, and sharing with suggestions on how these can be encouraged and developed at home. Because parents and caregivers are doing do much more in helping youngsters in their learning--readying them for classroom life, practice--these ideas seem especially pertinent. I thought there were some good ideas here which are based on research and can be done. And I like the intentionality of the essay.

Here is the link.
