We all know the pain of missing out on the party invitation. They have even created a fun term for this – FOMO (fear of missing out). We all love to be included. So how do we do help our kids do friendship well?
To have friends, you have to be a friend. For our kids, school is where they dive into the deep end of navigating friendships in what is completely unfamiliar social territory for them. As they are working this out, they need us as parents and educators to get behind them and support and equip them at home and in the classroom.
