A KIDS' GUIDE TO MAKING AND KEEPING FRIENDS
By Eileen Kennedy-Moore & Christine McLaughlin
Strong friendships matter deeply for children. Friends make the good times better and the bad times more bearable. Kids with good friends are also less likely to get bullied.
But getting along with friends can be complicated. Arguments, shyness, jealousy, or misunderstandings can get in the way of children having the friendships they crave.
Growing Friendships features true-to-life examples of common friendship challenges and practical, research-based solutions. With entertaining cartoons and fun exercises, it helps kids ages six to twelve learn to be open to friendship, choose kind friends, and, most importantly, be a good friend.
