We just posted on the blog some Dos and Don’ts of getting involved in your children’s friendships…
But what do you do if you just really don’t like one of their friends?
As a parent, there is a strong likelihood that your feelings are coming from a gut instinct that the friend in question is not a good influence on your child, in one way or another.
But as we discussed in the last post, the best thing you can do for your child is to help them navigate their friendships, rather than taking control over them.
The latter would not only be detrimental to your child’s social life and skills, but also to your relationship with them.
So then how do we deal with our own feelings towards our child’s friends?
