In Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer’s book, Making Friends … A Guide to Understanding and Nurturing Your Child’s Friendships, Elizabeth highlights the different kinds of friends children, and I dare say, adults also have.
- Different Age
- Bad Influence
- Ones You Don’t Like
- Brothers and Sisters
- Extended Family
Defining who and what is a friend reveals both the negative and positive qualities of each kind of friendship. Elizabeth also points out when having no obvious friend does not matter and why you should not worry, as well as, why friends matter and when they don’t.
Of course, reading Elizabeth’s book also paves the way for us to understand our adult friendships, whether they are a continuation of our childhood patterns and whether they are healthy for us and the children we influence.
Happy reading and discovering!
