As a parent, you probably already spend a lot of time with your child; but if your instinct is to be even more involved, you may be on to something. Beyond just the time that parents spend with their child, the parent’s emotional involvement in a child’s development can be crucial to how the child develops emotionally, psychologically, socially.
Young children’s acquisition of problem solving, language and social-emotional skills is facilitated by interactions with their parents.

Parents who invest time and emotion into their child in the early years help the child to build healthy attachments. From the parents, the child learns how to regulate their emotions, social boundaries, and how to form new attachments with their peers. It also helps to determine how emotionally expressive a child will be, how well they can communicate, and how they are able to deal with various social situations.
This level of involvement helps a great deal in addressing behavioural problems that the child may have. Especially for children with special needs, parental involvement has a noticeably positive impact in how the child develops, how well they can regulate their emotions and behaviour.
College of Allied Educators offers our Diploma in Learning Disorders Management & Child Psychology programme for individuals, parents, caregivers, and educators who want to understand and be more positively involved with their child’s development.
