Would you like your child to thrive socially with forever friendships? In My Best Friend and Me, author Lindsay Wille conveys to parents and children how the bonds of loyalty in friendship ensure fulfillment during childhood. Children not only want but need to be loved and nurtured by other kids their own age as it is a crucial part of their social development. Friendship helps children learn to interact socially, morally, and emotionally. These characteristics will continue to grow and develop throughout childhood helping children to feel competent and mature as they go through life. The moral of My Best Friend and Me clearly shows that friends are friends no matter what, which is something every parent wants to teach their children.
