Social and Emotional Development

Babies first YearSlide2

Emotional Development

is the process of learning to recognize and express one’s feelings and learning to establish one’s identity.Slide3

Social Development

is the process of learning to interact with others and to express oneself to others.Slide4

The two kinds of development are related because each influences the other.

How you feel about yourself will influence how you react with others.Slide5


Three factors that can affect a childs’

emotional responses:

The baby’s individuality traits

The type of care the baby receives

The atmosphere of the homeSlide7

Most babies find close, gentle contact

very comforting. They feel secure when a caring parent holds, strokes, and pats them.

Holding the baby during feedings, rocking the baby when he/she is fussy, and taking the baby for a walk can help the baby develop a sense of comfort and trust.

The baby begins to trust the parents and caregivers to supply these needs. Slide8

The emotional climate of the home is how it makes the baby feel.

Babies will catch the feelings of others in the home. If there is a lot of stress and anxiety, the baby will be upset and fussy. If family members are playful and happy, the baby will be happy as well.

A baby can tell if it is genuinely loved and cared for.Slide9

Comforting techniques to quiet a crying baby -

Cuddle up with the baby in a rocking chair

This is the baby’s first social relationship

Physical contact is vital to forming good social relationships as a baby but also affects socialization the rest of their life.Slide15
