Friends indeed: School friendships can boost achievement
Children learn a lot from their friends, such as loyalty, sharing, leading and following. And research says friends can also help children do better in school. Children who know they have friends are more likely to take risks such as trying out for a team or volunteering to do a math problem on the board. Encourage friendships by inviting your child’s friends to your home, or to join your family for an activity.
