Friendship Cards were created to help children develop skills to build a strong friendship, encouraging them to express their feelings, discuss their differences and resolve them in a constructive way
What’s it all about
Follow the steps
The feeling set of cards help us connect to our feelings and share them with friends & people we trust … the cards help us start the beautiful process of connecting to the people we care about
The Bad moves help us realise and avoid certain actions which could do more harm and hurt the each other without even knowing
Sometimes we are stuck in stalemate, Good Moves cards are packed with great & beautiful ideas we can use to explore the situation, understand each other and eventually find a way forward
Once we have made a number of Good Moves we can Make Up. This a the most beautiful set of all …. The cycle is complete and the friendship becomes stronger
Finally we reflect on how we feel having travelled the journey
We have created an education tool where children can learn communication life skills while playing a game. Friendship Cards are an interactive tool which can be used with friends at school and families at home. They help in the development of emotional literacy and conflict resolution skills, which empower the individual to cultivate positive attitudes.
Friendship Cards will provide children with ideas to make good choices that contribute to a happy and meaningful life. Friendship Cards will help children take positive actions to build a character based on strong values and healthy relationships.
Happy Children and Happy Families are the foundations of a strong and stable society.
Even if you are really good friends with someone, you can still have arguments or disagreements. That’s no big deal once you understand what’s really going on and how you can work things out together. These cards help you to:
- Feel comfortable in saying how you feel, talking with each other and finding out what caused the disagreement;
- Realise that life is full of choices
- Bad choices/moves only end up aggravating the situation and will take you nowhere
- While Good choices/moves will help us understand what happened and how we can resolve the situation
- Focus on taking positive steps and avoiding hurtful behaviour so that you can make up and be good friends again
- Reconnect to your feeling, reflect how you are feeling and why
Each card is designed to facilitate reflection, analyses and critically evaluate feelings, behaviours and outcomes.
Here is an example from “Friendship Cards”.The cards are colour coded to reflect the phase.
Each card has a key text and picture to help visualise the message. The back of the cards contains a list of questions intended to make you think and talk about, the last point on the card is a reflection on a possible way forward
