In brief: A + for learning

If the social interactions are positive and reciprocal ( give-and-take) and the other social partner knows how to recognize what the child has mastered and what he's ready to master, the child is encouraged to learn.
Building on experiences enriches a child's learning, so being exposed to new, positive experiences is a plus.
