  1. Teach the basics and practice, practice, practice. Teach children as soon as they’re able to talk the basics of good social skills: Look people in the eyes when talking to them, smile, listen, ask questions, say “please” and “thank you”, shake hands, and show respect.

  1. Encourage confident conversation skills. Teach your children how to make polite conversation with adults and with peers in order to make friends and build the relationship. Teach them to ask questions of others, listen, and show interest and empathy and then practice this often. Do not talk for them in social situations or make excuse for them.
