Social-emotional skills help kids:

• Gain confidence

• Gain awareness of what others are feeling
• And more!

Here are some skills your baby should be achieving:

0-3 Months – Begins to smile in response to caregivers
4-6 Months – Usually happy when surrounded by cheerful caregivers
7-9 Months – Plays social games, e.g. peek-a-boo
10-12 Months – Enjoys imitating people in play
