Forming Positive Relationships

Last Updated by Pre-School U Editor on

Children who form and keep positive relationships are ready for school and life because they have learned that they can trust others to keep them safe. Children who are comfortable with forming positive relationships get along with others, make friends, share and take turns. 


Questions to ask yourself:

  • Did you see anything in the video that you already do with your child?
  • How do you help your child learn to be kind and caring?
  • How did you learn to be kind and caring?
