Children of all ages communicate through speech as well as body language. Inside the homes and classrooms, and on sporting grounds, children have to learn to employ social skills to interact with their elders and their peers. So how do they inculcate skills like politeness, etiquette, respect for personal space, and ability to get along with people of all age groups?
In this regard, group activities play a vital role in our personal life. While paying attention to academics is important, it is equally imperative for students to participate in team sports and extracurricular activities such as music, dance, debating, and house competitions, to imbibe a collaborative spirit. Team work compliments individual qualities with the multidisciplinary strength of other members. Whether it’s the field of sports or research, film production or governance, learning and adopting social skills will help a child succeed in life.
