I'm never playing with Quentin again! Never, never, NEVER!
I can play with Tony — he likes dinosaurs.
I can play with Nadia — she likes tea parties.
I can play with Jerry — he likes hide-and-go seek.
I can play with Estelle — she makes me laugh.
Or I can play with Quentin. Wonder what he's doing?
Reading this book with your child can be a fun way to talk about friendship, conflicts with friends, and forgiveness.
A Note to Parents and Caregivers written by Elizabeth McCallum, PhD, discusses the normal ups and downs of childhood friendships and how children argue and make up with friends as a means of practicing social roles that they will assume in later years.
