As a teacher and role model for young minds, you can facilitate this important skill by teaching a unit on friendship. You might choose, for example, a lesson plan that focuses on developing socialization skills like:
1. How to identify what characteristics are important in a friend.
2. How to identify what a good friend does.
3. How to practice skills that help people make friends.
True friends don’t expect anything in return for your friendship. They like you for who you are and they expect the same in return. Friends offer an excellent way to get rid of stress and depression. The company of our friends makes us forget our sorrows and any unwanted pressure. Plus, we can openly ask our friends for suggestions on how to solve our personal problems and they would be glad to help us out.
Friendships can have a major impact on our health and well-being, but it's not always easy to build or maintain friendships. It is important to teach your students the importance of friendships in their lives and what they can do to develop and nurture these friendships. Friendships help children develop emotionally and morally. In interacting with friends, children learn many social skills, such as how to communicate, cooperate, and solve problems.
