How can I tell if my son is socially ready for kindergarten?

 

Is your child ready for kindergarten? Although each child is unique and develops at his or her own pace, most educators and developmental experts agree upon a certain set of skills as essential tools for further development and achievement in school. Review LeapFrog's skill checklists to see if your child is socially and emotionally ready.
