A child will always wonder how it can form good communication with someone especially if he/she wants to gain friends. To efficiently accomplish such good interaction, a kid should build its social competence wherein it will practice and analyze the method of communicating with the people on its side. It is the ability to handle being connected to someone without the help of others. The confidence and the socialization will outstand with this method which will guide the child to understand how it should act in a given situation. Sharing thoughts and trusting the people is the middle mean that a specific child must surpass. To support the statement, if a boy came into a playground where he doesn’t know anyone- it will torture for him to play by himself as he is fully aware that lots of kids also play in that location. By having social competence, he will approach someone and begins to introduce himself to form a good relationship with one another. An acceptable act that a child can do as it will realize that having good communication and a wide circle of friends is much better than being alone. In conclusion, social competence involves the ability to control the emotion together will the social level of the young one with the stranger and uncommon people in their sight.
