Social-emotional development comprises of the child’s emotions, experience and
interacting with other people. Babies begin to develop relationships with the people
around them right from birth. Although the ability to identify and understand emotional
states in others is a development that continues to advance throughout childhood, it is
important that the child learns through experiences with others.
