How You Can Help Your Child Make Friends At And Outside Of School

Lonely girl

Are you new to the area? Is your child starting school? Is your child struggling to make friends?

It is hard for parents to watch their child having trouble making friends in the classroom, on the playground, in the neighborhood, or any other place children their age mix and mingle.

Parents feel their children’s feelings and want them to be happy. However, trying to solve their children’s problems for them is ultimately not a solution. Instead, parents may guide their children in the right direction and get involved by talking with their child's teacher, read books about friendship, model behavior, try role play, or give them tools that may help them find their way and build relationships and friendships on their own.

Here is a one tool that will help your child break the ice at and outside of school.
