Summary The lives of most children are filled with joy, laughter, and their daily adventures with friends, classmates, and teammates. Some children, however, seem unable to make these important connections with peers and, as a result, are often islolated and ignored. Richard Lavoie explores the causes and consequences of "social incompetence." He provides strategies for teaching friendship skills in the classroom, at home, and in the community.
