We all know that sassy, spirited, and strong-willed kids have some really useful personality traits. “S” kids are generally strong, not afraid to say what they think, will stand up for themselves, and so much more. However, they also have traits that make it hard for them to function well with their peers. I polled the parents of our private Facebook to see what characteristics their kids had that were getting in the way of their ability to make a keep friends. The parents answers feel into one of the two following categories:
- Loud and bossy with their peers
- Anxious or shy around their peers
For the next two episodes, clinical mental health counselor, Mike Fitch teaches how to help kids in each of these categories function better in social situations.
In this week’s episode, we talk specifically about the Loud and Bossy kids while in next week’s we discuss the Shy and Anxious kids. Both episode’s are jam packed with ways to help your children develop much-desired social skills.
