How can we as parents help our children make friends??? not all are extroverts and not all children can break into a group and make friends, but the need to have fun, enjoy, share, and relate to people of their age is very important to be part of the social fabric.     any ideas/ help will be welcome!

Hi Anmol, believe focusing the playdates on the activities and games that your child is comfortable with can help him to be more confident in himself around his peers. Also your guidance and participation can make them feel more at ease. Arranging a double playdate with a friend who has kids can also help a lot , and as kids pay close attention to what elders do , you and friend can set an example by being participative and supporting in front of them.

Anmol hi yeah I can understand your point that every child is not as extrovert as the other one... every child is unique in himself, so you can make some effort to make him more comfortable with the social Life by taking him to places where people can meet like parks fairs fetes book fair parties, children birthdays and make him understand the social life and how to deal with the situations and talk to the people, be nice to them, you can even restrict the hours of watching TV and making him go outside to play if he wants to relax after his studies, this will be a gradual process , change will not happen overnight you can take the help of the following Blog too.

Hi Anmol ! U cant make friends for your child but u can definitely help them to be social by working on their strong points,this will give a boost to their confidence. Help them overcome stage fear or public speaking by making them join an activity of their choice say theater, art, dance, drama, music etc. also hold mock sessions at home. Role play his friend and help him open up a conversation. all these small small steps can help him overcome his inhibitions.
