Health Tip: Encourage Kids to Choose Good Friends
Suggestions for better relationships

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Good friends are hard to find, and keeping them may be even more difficult.

Here's advice for parents to pass to their children, courtesy of the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • Point out that friends should be respectful, helpful and follow the rules.
  • Be a good friend yourself, so your child can model that behavior.
  • Discuss qualities that make for a good friend, focusing on positive values that are important at home.
  • Schedule play dates with children who you feel will be a good influence on your child.
  • Work on a good relationship with your child, including honest and frequent communication.
