On this week’s episode, I answer a question on how to help a child when they’re having a tough time making friends.


How can you help when they say, “No one wants to be my friend?”

  • It’s a focusing process.
  • Our thinking is at the foundation of everything.
  • It determines our choices, and everything about us.


When people are disgruntled or depressed, they’re thinking more about themselves.

  • They aren’t thinking about whom they can serve and help.
  • If you’re child is sad or scared about making friends or going over to a friend’s house, focus their mind on the fun activities or opportunities they have.
  • I wouldn’t talk to your child about why no one wants to be his or her friend.
  • Instead, direct their thinking to how they can be the greatest friend in the class.
