This brief text focuses on the development of social, cognitive and emotional skills of young children. It aims to define the theoretical concept of "psychosocial skills" defined by World Health Organization (WHO) in 1997 (WHO, 1997, 2003; Mangrulkar et al., 2001), and to demonstrate the way it is articulated with the Ottawa Charter to promote a global positive health, both physically and mentally (WHO, 1986).The goal requires the development of psychosocial competences, which must be transmitted to the new generation, for it to be able to cope with everyday life situations and to build life conditions favorable for their good physical and mental health.
