Best Friends

Q: “My daughter has a best friend at daycare. Every day, they play together, never with anyone else, and feel sad all day if the other isn’t there. Shouldn’t she have more than one friend?

A: A strong and enduring friendship is a signal that your daughter has already developed important social skills, including empathy, loyalty and trust.

The close friendship between your daughter and her friend may also suggest that they find security in each other’s presence as they transition from home to daycare.

Together, they’re learning much about communication and coordination with another person, knowledge that will support many other friendships still to come.
