When children are born they do not automatically know how to navigate their social world. Some kids learn social skills almost by osmosis, whereas others need more support. Kids and teens spend between 35-40 hours a week at school around their peer group and if they struggle with peer relationships it makes for a long, often painful week. When kids struggle socially they often lack the confidence to find healthy peer relationships. They may have friends who put them down and don’t treat them well. In the teen years this can also become an issue in the romantic relationships they develop. Since our relationships with others are such an important part of our lives, it is vitally important for kids and teens to get support if this is an area they struggle with.
