Tips for helping your child:
- Try to make your home a friendly place that attracts children.
- Invite a classmate to your home to play with your child.
- Have your child participate in programs that bolster her interests and give her new skills (karate, music, scouting) and friends.
- Let your child see you in social interactions so that she will have an appropriate role model.
- Children with friends at school are generally better off than those without; however, solid relationships with family members, neighborhood children, and other adults are good substitutes.
