by Brie Tucker, No Guilt Mom
Just like riding a bike, baking chocolate chip cookies, or playing a video game, making friends is a skill kids can learn and master.
In this unique podcast episode, Brie takes on the role of host and interviews JoAnn Crohn, author of the upcoming book Me & My Friendships. This is JoAnn’s second book and it was a very special one to her. Kids often don’t understand all the ins and outs of social relationships and friendships. And if your kids are quiet, shy, or have difficulties understanding social norms, friendships can be a HUGE challenge for them. The book Me & My Friendships was written specifically for kids ages 6-10 years old and is as easy and fun read! Kids will learn everything they need to know to make and keep friends, which is essential for social-emotional development!
In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:
- What skills kids really need to know when making and keeping friendships
- How to listen to others
- How to ask questions kids want to answer
- How to find common interests
- Figuring out ways to show kindness to others
