How To Handle Childhood Friendship Drama
- The most important thing to do for your child is to listen. When they come home having experienced some form of friendship drama, listen without any judgment or interruption.
- Let your child know that you understand why they feel bad. Make sure your child feels validated in their concerns.
- Once you have really listened, ask your child any questions you need to in order to fully understand what happened. Use phrases like, “What happened next?” and “How did that make you feel inside?”
