No one wants to feel left out. Social skills for kids are important not only in building their confidence but also in cultivating meaningful relationships and interactions. Children who struggle to make friends may be excluded from groups at playtime, experience lower self-esteem, and feel lonely.
Listen, don’t lecture.
Ask them questions to learn more about the problem.
Make plans to meet with other kids.
Give them advice about how to build friendships.
Talk to them about bullying.
Tomorrow is a new day.
Even in today’s world of online and remote learning, meeting new friends and forging new relationships are still possible. For Fall 2020-2021, Brooklyn Letters is offering exciting online classes for your children and teens.
