Building Social Skills: How to Teach Kids to Make Eye Contact!

It's so important to teach kids basic social skills. One of the most important skills is to teach them how to make eye contact. Here's a helpful tip!

When you first introduce them to someone, ask them, "What color eyes does Mr. Jackson have?" That way, they'll have to make eye contact. Tell them from now on you're going to ask them what color eyes everyone has. 

Soon, making eye contact will become second nature.

This is a really great idea - wish I would have thought of this when my kids were little, Chrissy Jones!
