Why your child's early friendship is important?
Parent's play the biggest role in setting the stage for full-fledged friendship, caring about others and responding to social cues. Parents are the first people who have give and take interactions with the child. This is the sort of stuff in which friendship is eventually made. Such interactions includes that once your children begin to have friends, parents should help them with new experiences. Seek out situations for kids to interact, rather than trying to find friends for them. Don't force them that friendship doesn't work. And help children work out a solution nonviolently. Teach them how to interact and negotiate.
