Ask your child about Acknowledging Adults and Peers

  • Shake hands to greet people and say hello.
  • Remind your child to use these skills before you walk into any social situation, where they will have the opportunity to shake hands with people. 
  • Role-play meeting or greeting people with your child, before they walk into a possible situation where they need to do this.
  • Remind your child to always acknowledge adults who they know. They should walk up to the adult, offer to shake hands, and say hello.
  • Look for opportunities to reinforce this behavior, such as telling your child to thank a coach after a practice or game, and shake his/her hand.
