This episode is all about childhood friendships; the high and lows, ins and outs and how we can help our children navigate them better.

As humans we are social animals - we want to belong, we want to be accepted, be part of a collective and friendships serve that purpose for us. When it comes to school - friendships are the reason children stay happy and bounce into school. When they are struggling with friendships it can create a whole host of other issues.

These issues occur across all ages from pre-schoolers all the way up to our school leavers and university attending young adults - the language used is just different.

I’ll share the qualities of a good friend and the five friendship truths. 

Here are the highlights: 

(01:55) The importance of friendships for our children 

(03:15) Qualities of a good friendship 

(14:33) Identifying our strengths and weaknesses 

(20:14) How to react when your child is struggling with friendships 

(22:09) The 5 truths about friendships your child should understand
