Do you know how every kid has some special talent -- a skill that just makes you go "Wow! Where did they learn that?!"
It's that thing about your child that impresses you, makes you proud and causes you to stop and think how it will help them in life.
For my daughter, her amazing talent is meeting new people.
She's always the first one to volunteer to sit next to the new student at school. And every year she goes to a summer camp, she'll come home on the first day and tell us about her new friend. Granted, sometimes she doesn't know this 'new friend's' name ;) but she's always knows something about them and is excited to see them the next day.
When we saw the trailer for the NEW Peanuts movie that's out in theaters, I was reminded that meeting new people doesn't come naturally for everyone. As Charlie Brown finds out (and some of us have experienced), meeting people can be a little awkward whether you're the new person at school or the one who wants to welcome a new neighbor.
But my daughter has shared with me that there are some super easy ways to meet new people and help kids to begin those new friendships that could last a lifetime!
