Another great way to teach kids about being a good friend is to watch TV shows/movies and read books about friendship. This can help them see different scenarios, teaching them the difference between healthy and unhealthy friendships. After watching the movies/shows or reading the book, encourage a dialogue with your kids about what they noticed about the friendships. Were they healthy or unhealthy and why? How did characters show qualities of a good friend? What could they have done differently? How can they apply what they learned in their own friendships?
