It discusses the three basic "types" of children: -the moving away from child (shy and anxious) -the moving toward (enters friendships and group play easily and is well received) -the moving against child (the child that enters groups easily, but acts in various inappropraite ways) It also discusses the importance and types of friendships by age group. The thing I liked most though is that each section has "parent skills" that give you practical suggestions to help you help your child form healthy friendships. Parts of this book can be skipped depending on the type of child you have and their age, but generally I found it extermely helpful both in understanding my own children and in other children that are different than my own.

    Tabbed some areas that really give insight to a child's development. Critical one point take away for me: there is popularity by decency and popularity by dominance. Which do you what your child to value and become?

    I read this when Carter first started school and was recently on a course in which the presenter raved about this book. So I am reading it again.
