“To have a friend…be one” were the words the iron trivet in the little Texas kitchen of my childhood. I used to look at those words every day and I knew they held wisdom, but for the life of me, I could not figure what that wisdom was.
I always made friends easily, maybe because I was an only child and no friends meant no playmates. It wasn’t until much later when I had kids of my own that I realized not everyone possesses the ability to form and maintain friends.
As homeschool parents we teach our children everything from how to hold a pencil to analytic geometry. Do we need to add social skills to our busy lives too? The answer is a resounding …YES!
Remember, social skillfulness is also important in laying a foundation for our children to become confident spouses and parents later in life.
