At all stages of life, each person needs close people who will help share the joy or get through trouble.
From childhood, every child develops his own special temperament – mobile children tend to communicate early, so as not to feel lonely. Children with a calm temperament feel quite comfortable alone. Nevertheless, friendship is very important – it is mutual understanding, help and support.
It often happens that in kindergarten and in primary school, a child cannot be friends with anyone.
⚠️What are the signs to understand that a child has communication problems?
▪️On the playground, he does not contact with other children, but always plays himself
▪️Doesn’t ask anyone for advice or help
▪️Doesn’t want to talk about what happened during the day
▪️There is no desire to go to kindergarten / school
⚠️Possible reasons for a child’s lack of friends:
▫️The child is distant and immersed in himself
▫️The child lacks attention
▫️The child feels embarrassed
▫️The child feels that he is not respected
▫️The child feels constrained
⚠️How can you help a child who has no friends?
?If your child is shy about other children, start by talking in small groups. Let socialization happen gradually.
?Encourage games, hobbies, and other activities that involve interacting with other children.
?Spend children’s parties more often. Invite those children there that your child would like to make friends with.
?Discuss everything about friendship with your child, teach him the rules of courtesy and etiquette.
?Try to tell the child less about what his life should be. Instead, ask him more questions about what worries him.
?If social interaction is difficult for a child, indicate how much time he will need to spend in the company of other children and when he can go home. It will help reduce anxiety.
?Teach your child to be friends. Tell him by your example how to make friendship with a person who is pleasant to you – how to find common interests, start playing those games that are interesting to both.
