Let’s be honest. We all need friends in life. And not just friends, but good, solid, healthy friendships. But do our kids really know how to do that? Do they really understand how to build a better friendship?

 

We do our best to teach our kids everything they need to succeed in life. But many of us just kind of gloss over the skills of making and cultivating friendships. We may nudge our kids to go talk to other kids on the playground or ask more questions about that one classmate who when our kid talks about them, they seem to light up. But honestly, how many of us taught our kids at a basic level how to introduce themselves to others, how to find a common interest with others, and how to keep that connection going? 

 

Today we speak with Audrey Monke, a Camp Owner/Director at Gold Arrow Camp, host of Sunshine Parenting podcast/website - Author of Happy Campers: 9 Summer Camp Secrets for Raising Kids Who Become Thriving Adults.  She specializes in raising happy, self-reliant, kind, responsible kids using secrets from summer camp! And Audrey shares with us the secrets of coaching our kids to build better friendships.
