Navigating Child Friendships: What to do when your kid has been rejected

Nothing tears at a parent’s heartstrings like hearing their child say the words, ” no-one wants to play with me!”, or they’ve been told, “I don’t want to be your friend anymore!”
We’re a social species and we’re biologically wired to connect with others and so when our children are rejected it can be heartbreaking and it can trigger all sorts of emotions, experiences, and memories for parents.
In this month’s Maggie Moment, Maggie offers you guidance on how you can support your child in navigating tricky friendship situations and teach them the skills to not only cultivate healthy friendships that are fun but long-lasting too.
