Social-emotional health “allows children to express their feelings, understand others’ emotions and develop and sustain healthy relationships with peers and adults,” said Dr. Elisa Muniz, the study’s lead author and a pediatrician at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York. “There is strong scientific evidence that children who possess these abilities to a greater degree are more likely to succeed in school,” Muniz said. The study followed children from birth until they began kindergarten.
