Friendship is tricky and can be difficult at any age. Today we have created this interesting duality of “know yourself, express yourself, put yourself out there” AND simultaneously, weirdly enough, as we have become more respectful of self, we have become less respectful of others in many ways which make us want to hide.
The result is not putting our real selves out there, so people are making friends with a person that isn't even you sometimes.
In this episode I dive into:
So how does your child find a friend?
How does your child keep a friend?
What are some warning signs for your child and you as a parent?
How can we set them up for a lifetime of being able to make, identify and grow friendships?
About the Host:
Nellie Harden is a wife of 20+ years, mom to 4 teen/tween daughters, dreamer, adventurer, servant, multipreneur, forever student, and a devoted teacher, but her ride-or-die passion is her work as a Family Life Coach & Mentor.
Coming from a career background in marine mammal sciences, behavioral work, and a host of big life experiences, both great and not some not so great, she decided that designing a life of purpose and freedom was how she and her husband, along with their 4 daughters, wanted to live.
Her work and passions exist in the realms of family and parent mentorship because she believes that a family filled with creativity, fun, laughter, challenge, adventure, problem-solving, hugs, good food, and learning can not only change a person’s life but is the best chance at positively changing the world.
She helps families build Self-Led Discipline™ & Leadership Into their homes, set their children up for a wildly successful life on their terms, and elevates the family experience with big joy, palpable peace, and everyday growth!
With a lifelong passion and curiosity in thought, choice, behavior, and growth she has found incredible joy in helping families shift perspective, find answers, and a path forward.
(Nellie has been coaching families for over 10 years and has degrees in Biology, Animal Behavior, and Psychology. )
