Encourage social interaction

Giving your child the chance to spend time with other children will help him learn how to play with others and practice good social behaviors.

Arrange consistent play dates with peers so your child can begin to form a bond with them.

Look for or set up a play-group. A play-group gives your child the opportunity to learn skills for interacting with larger groups of children.

Finally, play with your child. It may not always be possible for you to have regular play dates for your child, but consider yourself a playmate. That way, your child can practice social skills by playing with you too.
