Friendship is such a wonderful thing. It makes you smile, it makes you sing. Heck, it even makes me rhyme! They help lift your spirits when youâ€™re down, and do all they can to wipe away your frown. Ok, thatâ€™s enough rhyming for nowâ€¦
Itâ€™s never too early to teach your kids the value of friendship. At a young age, friends for them may simply mean playmates. As they grow older, they realize that friends do more than just have pillow fights with you. Friends listen when you have a problem, and cheer you up on a gloomy day.
There are many ways to teach your kids to cherish the friends they have. For one, your daughter can send a friendship gift to her BFF at preschool. It doesnâ€™t even have to be anything extravagant. She can give some of her fridge-art to her friend, or even make her a simple friendship bracelet.
More than play, kids do enjoy giving and receiving gifts from their friends. They donâ€™t have to wait for a special occasion to come up. Every day is friendship day.
