Maintaining positive relationships throughout your life is essential to maintaining healthy social skills and sense of positive wellbeing.

Society is built on the foundation of the human capacity to form and maintain healthy relationships. It is a key component to maintaining a solid mental health. When we are younger this is more true than ever, as we struggle to understand ourselves. Most children naturally develop this ability as they develop, but it requires that they are in a supportive environment. Children that are not accustomed to being in a supportive environment will need help along the way. Children that do not receive the support they need often develop emotional issues that will plague them throughout life.

Teaching children how to build good relationships starts with teaching them about healthy forms of communication. We often start with the concept of sharing. Students that come from larger families often have an advantage here. They have been sharing since the day they were born. We then move on to friendship and what makes a person a good friend. This is where most children will struggle because of traits that went unchecked in their upbringing. Being in an environment with good role models is key. How those adults or older children model behavior will often trickle down to youngsters. These worksheets will explore all the positive aspects of maintaining healthy relationships. Talk with this often with children. This series of worksheets can help students learn how to identify strong and weak characteristics in their relations with other. Whether that be a plutonic friend or a love interest. Life is short you need to focus your time on spending it with others that have a real interest in your safety, being, and take time to understand you. We will also look at the positive qualities you should be looking for within these people. Students will examine simple little procedures to help you gauge and protect yourself emotionally while assessing this.
