Social Relationships

Our personal relationships with friends, teachers, co-workers, and bosses, are an important aspect of our daily lives. Having good social support has been linked to better health and lower levels of stress. In younger children, having social support can help them endure challenges such as bullying and peer relationships. An important aspect of social relationships is having the ability to effectively communicate. Being able to communicate allows us to stay connected to the people who are most important in our lives.
