Growing Friendships Summary:
Combining real-life examples, attractive cartoon illustrations, and humorous commentary from a snarky cat and a friendly dog, this upbeat effort provides ample useful advice….A fun handbook for any child who has ever wanted another friend but been uncertain how to accomplish that.” – Kirkus
From psychologist and children’s friendships expert Eileen Kennedy-Moore and parenting and health writer Christine McLaughlin comes to a social development primer that gives kids the answers they need to make and keep friends.
Friendship is complicated for kids. Almost every child struggles socially at some time, in some way. Having an argument with a friend, getting teased, or even trying to find a buddy in a new classroom…although these are typical problems, they can be very painful.
With research-based practical solutions and plenty of true-to-life examples–presented in more than 200 lighthearted cartoons–Growing Friendships is a toolkit for both girls and boys as they make sense of the social world around them.
After reading this funny highly illustrated guide on their own or with a caring adult, kids everywhere will be well equipped to face any friendship challenges that come their way.
This book arrived at the perfect timing. One of my nieces just turned 13, we know how awkward the teenage years can be. On top of that, she is moving and started a new school where she did not know anyone.
She is a shy child around her peers by nature so this is a real struggle for her. This book has been a lot of help. It gives you tips on how to start to talk to your peers and how to connect with them.
This book is a great conversation starter for parents as well to discuss friendships, peer pressure etc with their children.
There are cartoons to help and cute little commentary from a dog and a cat. The dog and cat, in my opinion, are hysterical.
I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. The opinions in this review are 100% my own.
