Do you have good friends? Do you consider yourself to be a good friend to others? Use this free printable friendship book to encourage your kiddos to be thoughtful and intentional about the friends they choose and the kind of friend they are themselves!
Making friends is easy…
Or it seems like it should be, right? As grown ups we know it’s not that simple. Keeping up with old friends that may no longer be a part of your daily life can be hard to keep up with. The days slip away and before you know it it’s been years since you’ve spoken. (FYI- I am this friend. I’m terrible with keeping in touch- in part due to my extreme aversion to phone talking!) Making new adult friends can be weird and awkward- a flash back to middle school. Cultivating a real friendship takes an investment of time that’s not easy to come by as an adult.
I don’t think it’s much different for kiddos, except for maybe the time issue. Putting yourself out there is hard no matter how old you are!
A book about friendship….
This printable book about friendship contains eight black and white pages for easy printing. Each page will prompt your child to think about an aspect of being a friend or having a friend. These prompts will hopefully inspire important discussions about why having friends feels good or what to when something about a friendship is bugging them. Kids can use these pages to respond independently or use them as a jumping off point for a brainstorming discussion!
The questions are simple but the ideas behind them are big ones!
