About the Event
Nearly every child has trouble with friendships in some way, at some time. This presentation describes five essential friendship skills that are part of the unspoken social curriculum for school-age children. It offers parents practical ideas for helping children to feel more comfortable and confident in social situations.
Friendship skills are never about just doing one thing. Children need to adjust their behavior flexibly to fit the situation and their goals.
You'll learn practical, research-based tips to help your child with 1) Reaching Out to Make Friends, 2) Stepping Back to Keep Friends, 3) Blending In to Join Friends, 4) Speaking Up to Share with Friends, and 5) Letting Go to Accept Friends.
