Welcome, this week how early childhood educators teach children soft skills, the non-cognitive abilities which make it easier for us to communicate and interact with each other. Also, how to overcome pester power.
How soft skills are taught in early learning services
The idea of someone 'going soft' doesn't have overly positive connotations for adults, but when it comes to children, softness is a valuable part of their learning and development.

Soft skills help children thrive in their first years and succeed later in life, so let's see what these skills entail and how educators nurture them in the early learning environment.
How to deal with pester power
Whether your child wears you down with incessant nagging or threatens to throw a tantrum in Aisle 3, there are times when it's hard to resist pester power. Against your best intentions, that chocolate bar might slip into the trolley or you may find yourself collecting plastic toys the planet doesn't need.

Even though it's hard to say 'no' or just want the whining to stop, the experts say it is important not to give in to pestering as this will encourage your child to use the tactic again. This week we look at pester prevention and how to take a consistent approach – for the good of your family, your finances and the planet!
