Observe the child in interaction in indoor and outdoor play.
No elicitation needed.
The child shows caring and comforting emotions towards familiar peers.
Help early childhood educators and parents to understand why they need to support the child’s positive interactions with peers. They can help the child lay the foundation for caring and empathy for others. Adults can point out how other children are feeling and encourage responsive reactions on the part of the child.
