Share qualities that you love about them and tell them what you value them for often.
So they can learn from their own thinking and ideas.
Our ideas on the best friends for them may not be right, trust that they can figure this out for themselves.
Pressure on them to find friends quickly might lead to the wrong choices and reduce their confidence. They will need to explore where they fit first and this might take some time.
We are their best role models, if they see us creating a sense of belonging for ourselves they will learn how to do it!
