Your child doesn’t get invited to a birthday party and says that nobody likes him.  The best response would be?

a) You have to be nicer to people.
b) Maybe he was only able to invite a couple of friends.
c) I know you must be disappointed and that’s okay. Lots of people like you. Remember when you were invited to Jimmy’s birthday?

 The best answer is ‘C’. Help your child see other positives in their life.
  • Discussing with your child how to make friends, or giving your child possible reasons why people might not be invited is also beneficial.
  • Give your child time and support to let go of feelings of disappointment.
  • Identify something your child can do to enjoy the rest of the day.
