Social and Emotional Development in Young Children

7-8:30pm
Austin Montessori School

Sunset Trail Campus  2906 Jones Road  Austin TX  78745

Young children are naturally egocentric beings, for this is one of nature's ways of providing for the Child's needs.  However, as they grow, the Absorbent Mind provides opportunities for fine-tuning their social interactions into gracious manners that are reflective of their culture.  We will explore how the important role of the adults in the young child's life, through mindful modeling and gentle guidance, supports the natural unfolding and acquisition of these vital social skills that result in generous, respectful and compassionate beings.
