LR Family: Red flags for underdeveloped social skills

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - All children develop at different rates. Power struggles and pouting may cause occasional parental frustration. But, how do you know if your child's social and emotional development is on track or fallen off the track? LR Family magazine editor Heather Bennett joins us to share the Red Flags of Preschool Social Development.

In a recent issue of Little Rock family magazine, one article details a few red flags when monitoring your preschooler's social interactions:

1. Trouble playing in a group or bullies others

2. Aggressive when frustrated

3. Withdrawn or sad (in groups or alone)

4. Continued anxiety with parental separation

5. Lack of interest in others

6. Bring list of your concerns to preschool teacher, pediatrician or if necessary a child psychologist
