||0470624507 & 978-0470624500
||Written by Fred Frankel, this book is the update to Mr. Frankel's older tome titled Good Friends Are Hard to Find: Help Your Child Find, Make, and Keep Friends. This new edition outlines a systematic plan for parents to help their kids acquire and sustain friendships. Most parents don't know what to do that will encourage their child to be a friend and attract friends. The author offers clear-cut friendship-making guidelines for parents and their children. Some of the book's recommendations include: don't over-schedule a child's time; guide children to participate in "friend-attracting" activities; seek out friends in the neighborhood.
