Robrenna sits down with author and speaker Kari Kampakis to talk about helping your daughters find good friends (and be a good friend!) as well as how to help your daughter find positive influences in their lives.

Tips for Ways to Engage:
1. Take your girl out for a treat and talk to her about friendships
2. Ask your girl who is someone around you who fits the following:

A Positive thinker
A good study partner
A good shopper
Trustworthy - keep what you say confidential and doesn’t spread gossip

3. Ask your girl to make a list of characteristics she’d like in a friend.
4. Ask your girl what characteristics from the list she that she possesses.
5. Do you see friendships that are “toxic” - hurtful and lack respect towards others? Why do you think a girl continues the friendship?

Verses to consider when talking about friendship:
John 15:12-15; Luke 6:31; Proverbs 17:17; Proverbs 13:20; Proverbs 18:25; Proverbs 22:24-25
