There are going to be times when children experience bugged feelings in a friendship. A friend might break a promise, act bossy, or tease. It is important that children learn how to deal with friendship bugs in a constructive way so that they don’t react negatively to those “buggy” feelings. It is also important that children become aware of their own friendship bugs (behaviors that bother other people) which cause them to lose friends.
