The American Journal of Public Health shared incredible research from Dr. Damon Jones on the link between children’s social skills and their future success.

The results were this…

“Children who have confident social skills will, later in life:

  • Be happier
  • Make more money
  • Be more successful
  • Are less likely to be unemployed and have substance abuse problems.”

With confident social skills, children are able to make and keep friends, handle themselves in all social situations even when it’s new or stressful, and work well with others. These skills carry through to help them in college, to advance their career, and to help them develop positive relationships.

According to Laurie Firestone, former White House Social Secretary for President George H. Bush, and manager of the Finesse Worldwide San Francisco, CA office, “Manners and interpersonal communication skills never go out of style and it’s more important than ever before to teach our children these skills so they can succeed in this competitive world.”
