Visco, G. (2019, June 12). Teaching Friendship Skills in Preschool. Retrieved July 1, 2019.

Teachers can help preschoolers get a better grasp on social and emotional learning by teaching them how they should treat their friends, writes preschool teacher Gerard Visco. Young children often make friends easily, but they struggle with how to behave toward them, so it’s important that children learn the basics of healthy attachment and empathy as early as possible, Visco adds.
