What to do if you don’t like your child’s friends
Hanging out with friends is an important part of growing up, a chance to learn and practice lifelong social skills — and of course to have a lot of plain old fun. But what if your child’s good buddy is someone you really don’t like? Marti joined KARE 11 Today with some helpful suggestions.
Here are her tips:
1) Examine your own reasons for being concerned.
2) Ask how your child feels about the friend.
3) Tell your child about your concern – calmly and clearly.
4) Define ground rules, expectations and a plan of action.
