Google hangout: Helping your child with friendship issues

Has your child ever had any friendship issues? In this week's hangout we talk about how we can help our children when a friendship start to go wrong

We are carrying on the theme of friendship issues this week with our latest Google hangout we discuss helping with friendship issues. Whilst teaching your kids about the ins and outs of friendship is very important, what do you do when they are distressed by a friendship going wrong?

In this video we are joined by our resident counsellor, Beckie Whitehouse of Be Confident Coaching. We love being able to sit down and have a chat with her about different parenting issues and in this video we discussed such areas as:

  • how CAN we help when they come home and say “nobody likes me”
  • when your child has a controlling friend
  • standing up for themselves
  • changing friendships as your child develops

Has your child had friendship issues that needed a helping hand?  How did you deal with it?  We do value all your comments so please do share them with us in the comments below.

We also like to share articles with you from the blogging world that we think will be useful reads. Hope you enjoy these posts:

Oh hey, this reminds me of my cousin's child that had quite an issue with making friends. After the divorce of the child's parents it was pretty rough for her to socialize with other kids. It's something that the family lawyer of their told us that it would be difficult to for the child to talk to someone after an issue with divorce had already occurred.
