Social Skills Kids Learn in Kindergarten
A young child’s mind is like wet cement, very impressionable and very quick on picking up anything they see anywhere including your neighbours, family members or even television. At such a juncture it is important to understand that Kindergartens are ideal for children to learn how a society works and meet children their own age in order to together create a safe haven and future they would like to be a part of.

Let’s take a look at the few skills a kid is exposed to at a good Kindergarten.
Sharing and Patience
In an environment with other kids, children are taught to behave in a respectful manner with each other. This includes sharing with each, being kind to each and learning patience. Humans are impatient beings and children are used to being pampered by their parents so much that they do not understand why they might need to wait for their turn to get something. Kindergarten is a fine lesson in patience and waiting for ones turn to come before they can speak or act.
Independence in a Safe Environment
Under constant guidance, children tend to become dependent and lazy. In a Kindergarten a kid is more or less independent to make his or her own choices. From basic activities like tying their own laces or using the bathroom themselves mostly on their own but in a controlled and monitored environment allows for the kids to evolve into independent kids and allows parents the assurance that, the lesson is not imparted in a harsh way.
Manners and Rules
When kids are placed in an environment where strange adults are making the rules and expecting these kids to follow them, what they develop is an idea about rules and in the long run the law. It helps kids become well mannered not only to peers but also to people older or younger than them and it also teaches them to obey the rules of the society.
Kindergarten is a very important way to impart social skills to your children. The skills learnt at Kindergarten are what lay the foundation of what is to come. By the time your children reach primary school the curriculum will shift to a completely education based one and that is why this part of their lives is important.
