Teaching Children Soft Skills

There are lots of skills that we often take for granted, unless there is a major issue with them - and then, because it is alien for us to address them, it can be difficult to know how to teach it.
Like helping your children to be better at listening
Or teaching them to concentrate
Or how to sit still and pay attention.

We should remember to take a step back and ask ourselves, what soft skills can we help our children to develop? We'll be bringing you some new resources on the Kids Goals website and the parenting newsletter over the next few weeks, to help you help your child learn to pay attention. Some of the games and ideas may be of particular interest to you if you are a parent or caregiver of a child with ADHD, but many children will benefit from them!

Happy Parenting,
