On the surface, the benefit of nurturing this type of development may seem obvious - children who can get along with others will naturally be happier in and outside the classroom. However, the benefits of social and emotional development go much deeper than a child's ability to make friends. This part of a child's development has lasting effects on their learning and academic success. So how is a child's social and emotional development nurtured? And when does this take place?
