Friendship What are Friends For? • Children and adolescents of all ages think of friendship in terms of reciprocity - what they do for each other - but what actually happens between friends changes with age. 2 The toddler may help a friend rebuild his block tower; the school age child may help a friend with homework; the adolescent may offer advice to a friend on issues they can't discuss with parents. Although the issue of reciprocity remains constant, concepts of friendship and the behaviors associated with friendship change as children develop. Why Friendship is important to a child • Friendships are important in helping children develop emotionally and socially. Through interacting with friends, children learn the give and take of social behavior in general. They learn how to set up rules, how to weigh alternatives and make decisions when faced with dilemmas. They experience fear, anger, aggression and rejection. Friends provide companionship and stimulation for each other, and they find out who they are by comparing themselves to other children. They learn that they're both similar to and different from others. Through friendships and belonging to a group children improve their sense of self-esteem. The solace and support of friends help children cope with troubling times and through transition. Friendships and School Achievement • It seems logical that having friends at school would enhance a child's academic progress. Friends can help each other with class assignments and homework; they can fill in what's missed during absences, and most importantly, friends make school more fun. Research confirms these impressions. Longitudinal studies show that children entering first grade have better school attitudes if they already have friends and are successful in keeping the old friends as well as in making new ones. What schools can do to encourage friendships • Children are taught social skills individually by an adult coach or counselor and then they practice the new strategies. • Peer pairing therapy; two children with difficulties interact while they receive feedback from an adult coach. In some instances a shy child is matched with a more outgoing child. • Conflict resolution programs teach children alternate ways of handling problems through peer counselors or adult-supervised techniques. • Collaborative learning, cooperative assignments and games or "buddy systems" may foster alliances and encourage positive peer interactions. • Reinforcement of appropriate social skills may enhance a socially reluctant child's social interaction. What parents can do to encourage friendships • Let your child know that you feel friendships are important and worth the effort. • Respect your child's social style; some children do best with a host of friends, and some do best with a few close friends. Some make friends quickly, and some warm up to friends slowly. • Find practical ways you can help your child make room in his/her life for being with other children. This is especially important if your child is shy or reluctant about peer interactions. For example, be flexible about family schedules so that your child can find time to be with friends. Offer your home or offer to accompany children on outings. You might also make arrangements for your family to spend time with another family that has a similar-age child. Or, you could make concrete suggestions, such as "You can invite somebody to go to the pool with us on Saturday?"
