There is increasing evidence to show that social skills and emotional development in adolescence are affected by the quality of early childhood education and experience.
Better social and emotional skills contribute to higher rates of high school completion and reduce adolescent involvement in risky behaviours.
Countries that place greater emphasis on the development of these skills from early childhood appear to have lower levels of adolescent morbidity.
Or in other words, our commitment (time, love, energy, education) to our young children has a significant positive impact on their adolescent years.
