|These cats are all besties.|
I went to a very small school and there were not a lot of children in our class. So, we were all friends. Sure there were times when we didn't get along and fought, but we all had to work through that because there were limited options of who else we could play with.
All of the varying "best friends" my son has, made me start thinking about the types of friendships that I continue to have today. I recently stumbled on this research positing that we only make three types of friendships:
- tight-knitters (you have one group of friends who all know each other well)
- compartmentalizer (you have separate groups of friends divided by function)
- sampler (you have one-on-one friends who probably don't know each other)
What type of friendships does your child tend to make? Leave a note in the comments.
