When an endearing child new to school is confronted with her very first on-again, off-again friend and not-so-friendly friend, she is left feeling defeated. What is she to do? Empowered by her own self-respect and empathy for others, she sets boundaries and expectations, opening the door for a healthy and mutually beneficial friendship to form.
In “The Not-So-Friendly Friend”, children will learn an easy and practical lesson about how to firmly and assertively – yet kindly – stand up for themselves in the face of a bully. Author Christina Furnival, a licensed mental health therapist and mom, shows how to navigate the complexities of an unkind peer relationship. By teaching children about the importance and value of setting boundaries for healthy friendships, this book provides children the tools they need to foster their social confidence and emotional well-being.
