The article provides information on the social behavior of children ages five to six, who are most likely in their kindergarten. Accordingly, these children easily find friends even in a new atmosphere, though there may be times they, perhaps, regress their behavior towards others. Meanwhile, some tips for parents on this aspect are provided like asking the child on his classmates, as well as planning playdates with kids in the new class.
