What do 3 and 4 year old’s need?

As a professional who has worked with kids for years, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of social skills development for kids before they enter school. Child psychologists and educators have conducted extensive research that confirms how crucial social skills are to a child’s social and emotional development, which ultimately affects their success in school and later in life.

Sharing and taking turns are essential social skills that young children need to learn. Children who understand the importance of sharing and taking turns are more likely to have positive relationships with others and develop empathy and compassion. At our facility, we have incorporated instructional martial arts drills to help children develop social skills. By having one student work with an instructor at a time, while the others wait patiently for their turn, children learn to be patient and take turns.

Following instructions is another critical social skill that children need to develop. In a classroom setting, children are expected to listen and follow directions from their teachers. This skill helps children to focus and be attentive, making it easier for them to understand new concepts and develop good learning habits. Our instructors use martial arts drills that are fun and engaging to help younger children learn how to focus and stay on task while getting some exercise.

Making friends is an essential social skill that helps children to develop positive relationships with others. Children who have friends are more likely to feel happier and more confident in social situations. Our martial arts classes are designed to work in small groups of 3 to 4 kids per instructor, which creates a structured environment where children can learn and grow with other kiddos.

In conclusion, social skills development is critical for a child’s well-being and success in school. As parents, you can help your child to develop these skills by providing them with opportunities to play and interact with others. You can also encourage your child to participate in group activities and practice sharing, taking turns, and following instructions at home. If you want to take it a step further, you can have them try out our Ninjas Program, a fun martial arts class designed to help kids aged 3 and 4 learn the types of social skills needed for school success. We are offering a free class for kids in our community on April 10th. Click the link below to learn more and register.
