Has your child ever complained that no one will play with them? What was your response? Did you downplay the situation or did you truly listen and ask questions?
Having a child say that no one will play with them may not seem like a big deal to you as an adult, but it is a big deal to them. As a parent, having the tools, skills, and ideas of how to help your child navigate these obstacles can be critical to preparing them for life with strategies to resolve relational situations. One way is to ask open-ended questions. Understood.org has ideas for open-ended questions in this great article.
