There are so many benefits of friendship during child development. It can improve mental well-being, teaches social skills, creates a sense of belonging, reduces stress, and so much more. The Student Services team at OCE is dedicated to helping students navigate through the virtual world of trying to foster friendships.
The Google Slides listed below are from the Family Engagement Presentation on February 24th, 2021, all about how to help foster friendship and connections in a virtual world. The Google Slides have great suggestions on activities, family/parent strategies, and links to resources.
