Do Kids Need Friends? - Why are friends important?




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
