Social development refers to the ability to build harmonious and positive relationships with others. It means being able to communicate and manage your emotions well, to consider the point of view of others before acting, to resolve conflicts, to cooperate and to participate in group life. From an early age, a child already has his way of relating to others due to his temperament, which is mostly genetically determined. However, the development of his social skills continues through contact with the people he meets and the experiences he has had, first with his parents and family.

How to help him progress?

Each child is different and develops at their own pace. But you can help support your baby's development by practicing the Comfort, Play, and Teach parenting approach. This approach was designed to fit easily into your daily routine. Adapted to your child's age, the table below gives you examples of small gestures that benefit their social development.


When you describe how he feels by putting words to his emotions, for example by saying: “William is sad”, when he cries, and by consoling him,

your baby feels that you are aware of and react to the emotions he is experiencing.
When you establish a routine for daily grooming and let him know, for example by announcing, "It will be bath time soon," and then allow him to participate in the preparations,
your baby is starting to recognize certain words that are used to describe how he is feeling. He feels comforted by your reaction and reassured because he knows what is coming.

To play

When you look at family photos and describe what people are doing,
your baby starts putting names on the faces of people around him and tries to say certain names.
When you let it crawl and explore in a safe place,
your baby shows interest in things around him by staring at them, stretching to reach them, pointing at them, or approaching them.


When you describe to him what you are doing by saying, for example, "Daddy is cutting carrots for supper" and talking to him about things that catch his attention,
your baby understands the world around him better and learns to recognize certain words.
