Why are friends important?⦁ Helping children develop emotionally and socially
⦁ It is a training ground for trying out different ways of relating to others
⦁ Setting up rules, weighing alternatives and make decisions when faced with dilemmas
⦁ Friendship teaches us how to win, how to lose, what's appropriate, what's not
⦁ We learn about social standing and power - who's in, who's out, how to lead and how to follow, what's fair and what's not
⦁ We see examples of how they're both similar to and different from others
⦁ Developing friendships and belonging to a group, because it helps children improve their sense of self-esteem
