Start Your Child’s Story the Right Way

Every parent wants their child to grow up to be a good person, full of kindness, integrity, confidence and compassion, so it would make sense to begin nurturing these skills as soon as children are old enough to “get it,” right? But what age is that, exactly?

We asked hundreds of parents across the country to tell us the age they felt a child should start learning social-emotional skills. What we found might surprise you. (Hint: It’s earlier than they think.)
