The flip side of not liking your children's friends occurs when you end up forcing another child on your kid. You schedule play dates, enrol them in the same activities, and nag your child to text them because you're just so giddy about this friendship. However, if your child is less enthusiastic about the friendship than you are, you need to lighten up.
While it's fine to help them establish friendships, forcing your child into a relationship with a person they don't connect with will ultimately lead to failure.
Let your child take the lead on who they befriend and spend time with. As long as the person they choose is not a bully or engaging in peer pressure, it's probably a suitable friendship.
