PAR­ENTS ALERT

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Ex­perts sug­gest that par­ents need to en­cour­age their chil­dren to make dif­fer­ent kinds of friends so that they can fig­ure out their own likes and dis­likes when it comes to per­son­al­i­ties. This helps them choose peo­ple or life part­ners later in life.

They also ad­vise par­ents not to push a child to make friends, as do­ing so can lead to anx­i­eties, pho­bias and un­wanted fears. The tem­per­a­ment of a child, and his or her needs should be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion; be­ing so­cial is not the only fac­tor for over­all de­vel­op­ment and well-be­ing.
