Friendship Skills

To make and keep friends we all have to use positive social skills

: cooperation

: communication

: empathy

: emotional control

: responsibility


When there is a conflict between friends the child's confidence may be affected, they sometimes blame themselves or others.


Learning positive friendship skills can help children socially so they feel happier and more confident.


Within ELSA we talk about how to be a good friend, what makes a good friend and how we feel when we have friends or argue with friends.
