At what age do children begin to have friends?
At an early age babies are not very clear about the concept of friendship, prefer to play more with some children than with others, but this is because they spend more time with them and feel more secure with their company, however, they do not have friends as such. The age at which children begin to have friends is from two years of age.
Friendship in childhood begins when children look for that first friend to play with and with whom they feel more at ease. Over time the little ones choose their friends according to their personality; there are children who choose their friends if they complement them, for example, when a restless child looks for the quieter child in the class, or on the contrary, when they choose their friends if they share tastes or feel a greater affinity with them.
Children learn to value friendship from a very young age, as little by little they realize what it means to have a good friend and, therefore, to be a good friend. At this stage of life children are usually very volatile, one day they have a best friend and the next day they get angry with him, everything is part of a learning process.
