[04/04/18]   HOW TO HELP YOUR CHILDREN MAKE AND KEEP FRIENDS

By Dr. Susan Istre, PhD, LPC-S
Director, Center for Social Success

Friendships are very important to our children’s happiness and well being. Here are some social skills you can teach your kids to help them make and keep friends.

1) SMILE when you look at others! Acting friendly and looking like you are fun to be around are perhaps the most important keys to success!
2) INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND REMEMBER THE OTHER PERSON’S NAME. Show interest by asking questions. Then listen and remember things about the other person.
3) JOIN IN GAMES & BE A GOOD SPORT. Avoid being bossy, getting mad if you lose or only playing the things you like. Take turns and have fun whatever you are doing.
4) SAY NICE THINGS about the other person. It feels good to be around someone who builds you up instead of cutting you down. Stick up for your friend if others are being mean.
5) INVITE FRIENDS TO PLAY OR HANG OUT. Take the initiative to ask a friend to eat lunch with you, go to a movie, or come to your house. Make sure to stick with your friend, not your computer! Be flexible and do what the other person wants when they are your guest.
6) CONTROL YOUR TEMPER! Nobody likes to be yelled at, threatened or hit! If you do something hurtful, don't just blame the other person. Admit your mistake and apologize.
7) SOLVE PROBLEMS AND FORGIVE OTHERS. Friends make mistakes too. Don't throw away a friendship at the first sign of problems. Talk about it and find solutions.

If you have tried to help your child with friendships and they are still not getting invited to other’s homes or birthday parties—or they continue to complain of being sad and lonely—get some professional help. Social skills group therapy can help your child become more self aware as well as learn more effective ways of interacting with others.

She Hands Her Crying Baby To A Stranger, Then Mom Is Stunned By What Comes Next...

Love this story!! Any mom knows how hard it is traveling alone with kids, but a newborn and new mom! This stranger was amazing woman to help her! There are still good people out there. Sad that most of us wouldn't have been able to trust this kind person because the way the would has made us.
