How to Deal With Your Kid's Annoying Friend

11 of 11

Ask your child his perspective.

If you wonder why your child is friends with someone, ask him! Give him a chance to open up, and he may make better sense of his young social life. For you, it can’t hurt to get a sense of how your little one thinks, and you can begin a dialog about friendship and good behavior. Early friendships are important, but one troublesome buddy won’t likely scar your kid forever. Next time that friend comes over, put your personal feelings aside and keep in mind what’s best for your child.
