Memorial Day weekend: Saint Paul Public Library will be closed May 23 - 25.

Social and Emotional Development

  • Provide opportunities for your child to learn how to interact with other children and with familiar adults.
  • Help your child learn how to follow rules, take turns, and share. Board games are a fun way to practice these skills.
  • Help your child label his emotions and learn to handle them appropriately, such as taking two deep breaths to calm down when he is anxious.
  • Praise her efforts in trying new things even if she isn't successful at first.
