Your child requires social intelligence to build harmonious relationships within the family and in the society. It helps him understand the people around him, and treat them with respect and love.

An article titled 4 best ways to raise children with social intelligence, published in janetlansbury.com, states, ‘Of all the skills we encourage our children to develop, social intelligence may be the most essential for predicting a fulfilling, successful life. It’s also the aspect of development parents influence most profoundly, and it’s crucial that we’re aware of that, because our every word, move and gesture are being studied.’

Social intelligence nourishes in the school environment where children have the opportunity to interact with their peers. There is also a school of thought that learning in a co-education system, rather than in single-sex schools, helps in promoting social intelligence of a child. But, how true is this?

According to American Council for Co-Educational Schooling (ACCES), children who are able to play with both girls and boys tend to have good social skills. The institution, which is a part of the Arizona State University, categorically states that co-educational schooling offers children respectful and supportive friendships with peers of both genders, and makes them socially skilled in families and workplaces.
