Friendship is the basic foundation of all relationships. It is the mutually respectful exchange of ideas, courtesy, respect and care.
This book is full of techniques and ideas to share with children which will help them be more likeable and open to friendship. You cannot make others like your child, what you can do is make your child the kind of person who others will want to be friends with. Here’s a little example that is expanded upon in this book:
