How To Find The Balance Between Being Involved And Interfering In Your Child's Friendships
Children should have opportunities to interact socially
A very good guide is to follow your child's lead. They will generally make it clear to you if you're being too involved, too directive. You would do well to listen to what they tell you, with respect to that. Everybody needs their own space, particularly in the area of social relationships. Find opportunities to give your child space to interact with others in a way that's independent of you.
