What you need to know

Praise your child when you see him engaging in cooperative play or when he understands other’s feelings. For instance, he may see his younger sibling crying and help him by giving his favourite toy. 

In case of conflict, help him see the perspective of each participant in the conflict. Guide him to resolve the conflict either by sharing, taking turns, both sides apologizing, etc. In case he is at fault, tell him to apologize to his friend and move on. 

Read books to him that talk about values related to friendship.
