Social Behavior

The first reference to Social Behavior is how to enter the living room “We do everything we do softly, we
speak softly, we walk softly.”

One of the  points we mention earliest regarding social behavior is that “here in the House of Children we
do things in a certain way, but others do not always behave in the same way. If they do not, not only do
we not say anything about the way they behave, we do not even notice it.” The social forms of expressing
feelings change from place to place, time to time. Respect and consideration for others is good manners.
Tell stories giving examples of this, e.g., the queen, the foreign dignitary and the finger bowl.

Although most of the activities of social behavior are individual activities, they don’t make sense
presented to an individual and so are always presented to a group or collectivity because for most of
these activities at least two people are necessary. Also for this reason for most of the presentations of the
activities of social behavior we must seek the cooperation and help of another person, either an older
child, another adult whom we have shown the activity or, if necessary, one of the children to whom you
wish to present this activity who you must coach beforehand. The other person must know how to
respond to whatever you are presenting how to offer a glass of water, the other person must know how to
receive it.
