The article presents guidelines for developing learning skills among children. Both parents and teachers understand the building blocks that form social-emotional foundation in children. While teachers and parents might have different perspectives, it should be remembered that both can bring important knowledge and skills to the table. Teachers often know more about the development of children in general than parents do, and parents usually know more about their own child's development. To understand your child's style, talk to your child's teacher and observe her at play or on a walk to see what sense she favors.
