how to help your help your child make friends

Friends can make life so much better! They make us laugh, and they are there for us when we’re down.

Without friends, many kids can get lonely. This section will teach you about: making friends, good friendships, and what to do when a friend isn’t nice to you.




Friendship skills: suggestions for families

Parents and carers are children’s first and most important teachers when it comes to relationships. The ways you relate to your children and the guidance you provide helps develop children’s social skills. You can help children develop friendship skills and strategies by modelling effective social skills, providing opportunities for children to practise relationship skills and offering support when they go through difficulties. Taking the role of a coach helps children learn the skills they need for themselves. http://www.kidsmatter.edu.au/families/about-friendship/making-friends/making-friends-suggestions-parents-and-carers

making friends - for kids

When you meet someone, you don't know whether that person is going to become a good friend, so you have to be a bit careful at first. Friendship is like planting a seed that you've found. You are not quite sure what is going to come up so you have to watch it carefully and nurture (look after) it.
