Parenting: Making Friends

How can you help if your child finds it difficult to make friends? Jenni talks to Tanith Carey, author of ‘The Friendship Maze’ & Dr Angharad Rudkin, child psychologist.

Friendship battles between children have always existed – but how can you support your child if you feel they aren’t fitting in? How do you help your child make friends? And how much can friendship be taught anyway - or should adults leave children to work it out for themselves? Jenni talks to Tanith Carey, author of ‘The Friendship Maze’ and Dr Angharad Rudkin, Clinical Child Psychologist at the University of Southampton.
