Mini-Course: Preparing for School-Entry


2 - Preparing Your Child for School-Entry

Proxemics: one's distance from another person

Teach your child to reduce the distance between himself or herself and the person to whom he is listening or speaking, if that person is more than four feet away. Show your child a concrete example of this distance.

Devise a simple hand signal to cue your child to move closer or farther from someone before engaging in a conversation.
