How to encourage your children to be a good friend

Friendships play a massive part in our child's development and helping them to be a good friend from an early age will help them as they get older and approach adulthood

Welcome to another Parenting Tales from the Sofa and we are again joined by Beckie Whitehouse of Be Confident Coaching.  This week we are talking about childrens friendships and how to help to be good friends with each other.  Friendships play a massive part in our child’s development and helping them to built trusted friendships from an early age will help them as they get older and approach adulthood.

We cover a variety of topics, including:

  • What we should be instilling is a good friend
  • any particular activities we can do to encourage friendships
  • what happens if a friend is upset or sad
  • dealing with conflict between friends
  • helping to understand other childrens emotions

How do your children cope with friendships?  Do they make friends easily or do they find it difficult?  How do you help them?

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters.
