Helping children make friends through connection, yoga, EFT and affirmations.
Friendships are an important part of life, and making friends can be hard for some children. Friendships often form over common interests and through socializing. When children have difficulty in socializing, or in expressing themselves, they can find it hard to make friends.
Helping children find connection with themselves, and each other, will help children form friendships with people from all walks of life.
Friends help us know who we are, by their acceptance of us, and their positive reflection. A friend is someone who believes in your hopes and dreams, someone who likes and loves you, just as you are. A friend will listen to your problems without sharing them with others. A friend is someone who makes you feel good about yourself.
Forming friendships within your community is healthy. It supports your spirit, your self-esteem, plus your brain and immune development.
Friends and community give us a sense of belonging.
