Good friendship skills are one of the most important attributes a young person can have. These cards, which are designed to promote discussion about friendship and social skills, will help young people to realise that they are able to change their way of thinking and feeling. With adult help, they can learn new skills to make their relationships more successful. Taking the approach of ‘me and my friends’, these cards give you a series of prompts to begin important discussions with children. The cards are grouped into categories covering:

  • How I show my friendship skills
  • Statements about friends
  • Statements about friendships
  • Feelings of being disliked
  • Falling out
  • Making up
  • Negotiating
  • Challenging a friend

Areas that young people will learn more about through the discussions generated by these cards include:

  • Showing generous behaviour by sharing or forgiving
  • Listening
  • Involving others in their games or activities
  • Recognising when others are upset and doing something about it
  • Smiling and laughing with others
  • Respecting another’s body space
  • Being able to challenge someone else respectfully
  • Giving feedback
  • Making up after a quarrel

Based on the theories of social intelligence, this is a must-have resource for your social skills programmes and classroom work.
