The opportunity for social interactions with others is very important for the development of all children.
Although social interactions for very young children primarily occur within the family, as children grow and develop, they become more and more interested in playing and interacting with other children.
Most opportunities for social interactions among young children occur during play
Children who learn appropriate social skills often have a higher self-esteem and show a greater willingness to interact with their environment as they grow.
And Even More
Toys such as blocks, dolls, dress-up clothes, trains, and cars promote social interactions much more than do toys such as beads, clay, puzzles and paints
Planning small group activities that require cooperation and sharing motivates socially interactive behaviors. For example, painting a mural or making soup as a group encourages children to learn to work together
Teachers and other adults also can promote interactions by teaching children specific ways to ask other children to play.
When playing with others, children learn appropriate social behaviors, such as sharing, cooperating, and respecting the property of others
This is equally very important to the development of the child
Children get to learn fun social behaviors
