Halloween Social Situations
The Holidays can bring up new and different social situations and this can be stressful for some kids. Halloween is fast approaching and we wanted to help provide you with strategies to help bring up some of these difficult social situations.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
One way to help your child understand different social situations is by talking through them. Help them develop a plan before they get in the situation. Practice makes perfect. Helping them problem solve before the situation, will hopefully help keep them safe and help them make good choices.
Halloween can involve new situations with trick or treating, going out into the dark around the neighborhood, going to halloween parties, going up to strangers houses, talking with new people, scary movies, haunted houses, new foods, and dressing up in costumes.
These can be new and different experiences where we are put in new social situations. We can help our kids by talking through some of these new situations ahead of time. We have created a great FREEBIE to help you talk through some of these new social situations.
We have created Halloween Social Skill Situation Cards to help them problem solve different social situations.
These are great social topics to talk through with your middle school or high school student.
