Transcript of Friendship

How do children interact with each other?
Children under three interact with each other by means of parallel play. This means that they play alongside each other, but do not interact directly. By 13-24 months, children have stable relationships. And by 25-36 months, children have more flexible relationships.
Why are friendships important to young children?
Friendships in early years promote social skills in children, now and later on in their lives. It also helps if the child doesn't talk and they are around other children that do talk; this will encourage them to speak faster. And possibly other skills will be learned through friendships.
What do you think happens when there is a conflict between friends?
Through conflict, children learn to exercise self-control and establish boundaries between friends. But in order to learn, parents have to intervene and model resolution skills.
How can adults help their kids develop friendships?
Since having friends helps children establish rules and boundaries it is important for parents and practitioners to make sure the child is being social enough. They can help by rewarding the child whenever they are in a social interaction and also by encouraging the child to play with other kids, but not being to pushy.
Even if the child is shy it doesn't mean that they are antisocial, they usually grow out of their timid stages. So don't worry when children are shy.
In conclusion
Friendships help children in a few ways; social skills, emotional and mental development. Friendships offer children to learn to control their emotions in certain situations. It is important for parents to be involved in their children's social development. Further more friendships, friends and parents, are a key to a child's development.
Language is not a barrier to friendship. Children do not need language to interact. They interact through gestures. Children have no barriers when it comes to play or friendship.
Eg- their interaction can be verbal or non verbal.
What does friendship mean to you?
What makes your friendship blossom?
How has friendship played an important role in your life?
E.g.: helping, talking, being there for you
Although young children with disabilities often experience limited success in developing friendships, this does not mean that friendships do not exist for them.
"As an emotional resource friendship furnish children with the security to strike out into new territory, meet new people and tackle new problems. They buffer children and nuture them ready for adolescents from the adverse effects of negative events."
E.g: As they grow; family conflicts, illness, unemployment,
failures, etc can affect their friendship. When they are alone and don't have any friends to talk to or share their life with, this would make them socially isolated. They will not possess the capability to trust anyone , they will find it difficult to cope and confide in anyone and this leads to mental stress.

In pairs discuss

Interest in the friendships of children with disabilities has increased along with the inclusive education movement. (Taylor, Peterson, McMurray-Schwarz, & Guillou, 2002).

Researchers have subsequently suggested various ways to support children’s social interactions and facilitate friendships between children with and without disabilities (Danko & Buysse, 2002; Gordon, Feldman, & Chiriboga, 2005).
"Friendships provide children with more than just fun playmates. 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."
Through friendship children practice controlling their emotions and responding to the emotions of others. They develop the ability to think through and negotiate different situations that arise in their relationships. "Having friends even affects children's school performance." Children tend to have better attitudes about school and learning when they have friends there. In short, children benefit greatly from having friends.
Cross Cultural Friendships
Cross cultural friendships are a way for children to better understand different points of view.
In our global and multicultural society, children's friendships are often linked to social and emotional competence and researchers find that cross-cultural friendships are connected to prejudice reduction and peacemaking efforts.
Children who experience cross-cultural friendships, often have higher levels of social competence and self esteem than their peers who do not have such friendships.

Bullying can happen to people of all ages and can only be stopped if the victim stands for themselves and tells someone about what is occuring.there are four main types of bullying which consists of physical, emotional, verbal and cyberbulling.
NCPCC: Bullying and Cyber bullying at a glance. Availiable at http://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/child-abuse-and-neglect/bullying-and-cyberbullying/ (Accessed 20/10/14)
Bullying is a behaviour that hurts someone else – such as name calling, hitting, pushing, spreading rumours, threatening or undermining someone.

It can happen anywhere – at school, at home or online. It’s usually repeated over a long period of time and can hurt a child both physically and emotionally.

Bullying that happens online, using social networks and mobile phones, is often called cyberbullying. A child can feel like there’s no escape because it can happen wherever they are, at any time of day or night.

Proverbs 13:20
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
