Social and Emotional Development - Younger Preschoolers (33 to 48 Months)
Sharing and caring are a big part of your younger preschooler's social and emotional development. Not only are they learning how to cooperate with other kids their age - they're developing the ability to show empathy, express feelings and be generous with others. That's a lot to learn! Always model good behavior, and remember to go heavy on the hugs and praise. Simply helping your child feel good about themselves plays an important role in emotional development.
