ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your kid starts their day, tell them about a trait you see in them that makes them a good friend to others.
While on the go, ask your kid: “Tell me about someone who is your friend. What do you like most about them?”
At a meal, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What makes someone a good friend?”
Pray for each other: “God, give us the wisdom to choose friends carefully, and the courage to walk away from friendships who are harmful.”
