Part Two: Friends
Our Target: We’re trying to help our kids understand the ways a friend should treat them. Let’s let our kids know that to be a good friend, sometimes they will have to say “No” to friends to keep from breaking the rules and getting into trouble.
Team Up! Try these simple tips to help your child want to talk.
Just ASK your child:
-“What do you think being a good friend means?”
-“Do you think a good friend would ask you to do something that is wrong?”
-“Do you think that doing the right thing is more important than keeping a friend happy?”
Follow the lead of where your child’s answers take you and talk about the differences between good friends and friends that want to get them in trouble.
