Every child experiences friendship breakups at some point.
They often fall out with their friends and then make up again quickly afterwards, but that doesn’t mean these friendship problems aren’t important. Falling out with a friend can feel like the end of the world to your child.
So how can you help them when they go through friendship breakups?
1: Listen to them
It’s hard to be a good listener. We jump in with helpful advice, or tell stories about how we got through similar experiences. But good listening gives your child the encouragement they need to open up.
