Summary: Tools to teach kids to build healthy friendships, maintain boundaries and recognise positive character traits in those around them.
I remember the first time I thought I would have a friend forever.
It seemed so beautifully pure to imagine that two people could spend their whole lives connected by an invisible thread, just on the desire alone.
Add travel, family, work, lifestyle choices, and I found myself believing that a true friendship was nothing more than an idealistic mirage in my fertile imagination. It is hard to cultivate a true friendship, but it is harder to live without a true friend. I know that now.
Give your children tools to understand good friendships. Manipulation and control are subtle aspects of friendship distortions that can be explored in these simple conversation-starter activities.
