My daughter is 12 and quite the introvert. She values relationships, but does not perform the commonly acceptable actions to initiate and maintain those relationships. I’m always encouraging her to reach out to people and express interest in what they’re doing. I want her to have friends, associates and later in life, a professional network.
Today I was having a conversation with an old friend and she was telling me that she struggles to meet women as an adult. Once you’re no longer in school or playing outside with your friends, she asked, how do you create new bonds? Great question!!!! I gave it some thought and came up with a couple of ideas. This is by all means not an exhaustive list; feel free to add your tips in the comments section.
