Friends are known to play an important role in the emotional wellbeing of children. Remember, their mental health is as important as their physical health. True friendships as we have seen last a lifetime. While there have been many books written on friendship, there are some that stand out.

A key role in shaping the personality of a child
At the end of the day true friendship is all about being selfless and having unconditional love for a friend. Friendships, as mentioned earlier, do play a key role in shaping the personality of a child. For them it is their first real attempt at socializing. They get to meet new people. They soon realize that not everybody thinks exactly like them. Friendships therefore teach them about empathy.
Friendships also teach them about sharing. Friends also form their emotional support system, in whom they can confide their innermost feelings. Friendships therefore, act like stress busters for the young and for that matter, the old alike. Importantly, at a young age, friendships also help build a child’s self-confidence.
