Making new friends can be both exciting and full of anticipation…and I’m not just talking about how this can impact your children. The start of a new school year is full of new social interaction for parents and children alike, making for plenty of fun when scheduled well. This week, I’m delighted to be featured on Primrose Schools Dr. Z and Friends Blog sharing tips for how to navigate playdates with an organized eye.
An excerpt from the post….
Set a Limit: Open-ended play dates can be great when children are older but when they are younger, things can turn south quickly. What starts out as a fun play date can turn into a long stretch of several hours entertaining a group of young children. Create a set time for when the play date begins and ends, so that everyone knows what to expect. Remember, it’s much better to have a little bit of something awesome than a lot of something that didn’t go well.
