Friendships Between Kids of Different Genders

March 31, 2022

Blog post Friendships Between Kids of Different Genders main image

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” — C.S. Lewis.

As the saying goes, no man is an island. Friends are our acquired family – friendship is not something we are born to but a relationship that we build. It starts the moment we realize that we have mutual interests, beliefs and values with another person. And even though differences are still present, we respect those differences. It is a relationship wherein gender, race, social status, or anything else does not matter.

Friendships are often formed during childhood, and this form of friendship happens to be more genuine than what we have as adults. Between kids, there are no biases, they tend to focus on the fun and bonding experiences they have with one another.

Nonetheless, our understanding of what is best for them may not always match their own.

 Parents usually know what is best for their children since they have a unique understanding of their requirements, preferences, and desires. This ultra-close relationship allows parents to better steer their children into becoming responsible adults. You want your child to respect, trust, and listen to you, and you want to be encouraging but not overbearing. Parental pushing is typical, as parents seek that fine line between motivating their children and placing extra stress on them.

Blog post Helping Your Child Manage their Emotions main image

Most of us have watched the movie Inside Out, which is a great show that identifies 5 out of the 8 primary emotions: joy, sadness, disgust, anger, and fear. These primary, or basic, emotions are built-in and can be further learned through social and cultural contexts. Some of them may grow stronger and become more apparent than others. There are also secondary emotions, which are defined either as emotional reactions to primary emotions or as more complex combinations of our basic emotions. For instance, when a child gets yelled at, they might feel scared, and that fear can further lead to anger or anxiety. Controlling one’s emotions can be quite difficult, and the ability to do this depends on the person’s age and development.
