Friendships are a really important part of children’s lives. They’re crucial for mental, physical and emotional health.
It’s normal for children to feel nervous or have anxious feelings about making new friends. You can help by talking to them about friendships and organising activities where they can meet other children.
While they are young, your child will need your help to spend time with other children outside of school or nursery. There are lots of ways you can support them to make friends.
