There is no denying that friendship is an integral part of each of our lives. Many of us are still close to our childhood friends till today, and we don’t have to be reminded of how valuable these kinds of friendships are.

It is essential for kids to be able to make friends and maintain close friendships – a skill that will prove to be more and more valuable the older they get. Children need to be able to make form connections with their peers so that they can build beautiful, loving friendships. And like everything else in life, being a good friend is something that can be taught to them.

First, it is important for parents to ensure that your kids are confident in who they are. They need to know their self-worth if they are to form meaningful relationships. To build your child’s self-esteem, make sure to praise their achievements, highlight their strengths and positive attributes, etc.

Life like dolls for kids

Kids learn many things on their own from what they observe around them, which is why it is so important that they have good role models. This is where Ask Amy comes in. Being an educational toy that is also highly interactive, she is the best friend any child can have. The life-like movements of the doll, the way she politely speaks and communicates, the way that she can teach your kids so much while still having fun – all these are important attributes of a good friend that your child can model.

Lastly, kids should be taught the art of conflict resolution from a young age. They need to understand that friends don’t always agree on everything, and arguments are normal. They need to be taught how to respect other people’s opinions, the importance of apologizing, and accepting your mistakes as well as how to move forward after a disagreement.
