Let's Be Friends! (6Y-10Y kids' workshop)
Do you know research shows that a person who is good with people and has grit is more likely to succeed than another who only gets good academic results?
Being able to ask for help and having a strong positive social support system (in the form of family and friendships) can strengthen your well-being and ability to recover from setbacks.
Empathy, listening skills, social perception, cooperation (team play) and conflict resolutions are some major skills that are necessary for workplace success.
These similar skills are also important in forming and maintaining deep and loving relationships with people of different characters and personalities.
Children (6yo-10yo) meet a surprising variety of personalities and characters in school and other social settings. Support your child in navigating the ups and downs of early friendships and help your child fit in well in Primary School. Your child will also learn to apply the skills in family interactions.
This series of experiential workshops will help your child learn essential social skills through activities and interactive plays.
Activites and lessons are adapted from Social Thinking(C) by Michelle Garcia Winner and will cover basic Social Perception as well as Social Thinking skills.
