Your child will also acquire a wide range of life skills during this time. From doing chores around the house to making friends at school, this is a pivotal period of growth. Friendships will become much more cooperative, as elementary school is a time during which kids are learning to understand each other’s thoughts and emotions. They learn about teamwork, participation, and friendliness. As academics become more difficult and demanding, it’s important to teach your child the fundamentals of time management in regards to studying and homework.
