School & Social Life

Girls HuggingFor girls, friends form the center of their lives. Friends light up girls’ days in preschool, become inseparable in elementary school, and help girls in middle school develop their own, separate lives. As girls grow up, it’s not unusual for them to find best friends, break up, and reform friendships time and again.

Looking on from the sidelines, parents sometimes agonize over their daughters’ social lives. It’s hard to watch your girl lose friends, get hurt by friends, and even hurt friends herself. Our panel of experts offers some ideas about what to do, and what not to do, to help girls enjoy the ups and survive the downs of their social lives.
