Tip 48 – Be on the lookout for the highest quality friends for your child.
The world is made up of billions of people, and each one is an individual. No one knows what draws people together. Sometimes it is likes, and sometimes dislikes. Sometimes it is similarities, and sometimes differences. Often it is some magical combination of all of them. Friendship-making usually turns out well, but not always. First let your child do the picking. Then, with your own watchful eye, provide your guidance.
Who your child’s friends are is important and will have an influence on the kind of person your child will become.
