Instill Self-Esteem The first step in teaching your child to be a good friend is to teach her to be good to herself. When a child has a strong sense of self, she won’t feel it is necessary to join in on bullying or other mean behaviors to make herself feel better or to fit in. Children need to be taught that people are more important than possessions. 1 Corinthians 13:4 – 6 says, Charity (love) suffers long… is kind… charity doesn’t envy isn’t puffed up love doesn’t seek its own.

2) A good friend is Loyal. It’s easy to view relationships as disposable. Encourage your child to treat their friend like the guest of honor, and throughout the play date, ask if they want anything to eat or drink.

Ask your child to notice if there are kids at school that keep to themselves at recess and encourage them to invite them to play. Andy Andrews book, Henry Hodges Needs A Friend, is a great read to help kids understand what it might feel. Model Friendly Behavior for Your Children This is one of the best ways to teach children how to make and keep friends. Show your children appropriate interactions with your own friends.

Show them how to be kind and caring. Tell them when they are being a good friend. I try to point out when they are being a good friend or when someone else is being a good friend. Brittany from Pennies Into Pearls.

Teach them that some “friends” aren’t really friends. My oldest daughter has had issues with friends in the past. Let your kids see you being a great friend, too.

Call your friends on their birthdays. Bring the neighbor some of the muffins you just baked. Pull together meals or help out a friend who suffers a loss or welcomes a new baby. Therefore, show your child how you use the same skill. You never know, you may make a new friend because of it.

It’s totally empowering once you master it and your child will feel empowered as well. Here’s to showing the world how awesome you are and teaching your child how to do the same. We can’t chose our kids friends, but we can teach them how to choose good friends and the right friends. Showing children what makes a good friend, how to choose their own friends and be a good friend to others.

Write a short story or a book on what one does to show respect, integrity and honesty. If there is a school-mate who criticizes others or mocks others, that is not a friend you wish for your child to choose as a close mate.
