Updated for 2016! How to Make & Keep Friends: Tips for Kids to Overcome 50 Common Social Challenges By Nadine Briggs and Donna Shea offers social skills and friendship advice presented in a reference guide format, using lists to easily find tips and strategies on a specific topic or social situation. This is a resource for those children who benefit most from direct instruction or learn more effectively using factual materials rather than fictional stories.

While the reading grade level and content is geared toward elementary school kids, many teens and adults report they are finding these tips on the basics to be helpful. Included are simple and immediately actionable tips to navigate common social situations that can be challenging, such as:

• How to Join a Group
• How to Safely Handle Angry Feelings
• Handling Rejection and Exclusion
• Working Things Out & Sharing Fairly
• Being a Good Guest and Host
• Playground Success
• ... and much more!

In this updated edition, we have taken the feedback from our reviews and readers and added the "why" of learning each of these skills is important along with practice questions to inspire discussion and role playing of different social situations with children.
