Friends Matter: The Importance of Friends to Your Preschooler

During your child's first few years, he has been aware of and interested in his peers, but hasn't quite been ready to play together with those kids and form true friendships. You may have seen him make his first friends at around 2.5 years old, but most children starting making friends between the ages of three and four. These friendships are very important to your child and help with his social and emotional development. They teach him how to interact with and relate to others and show him that other people have different interests and opinions than his own.

Has your child achieved the following Building Relationships developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all of the skill(s) he has already mastered to date.
