In Episode 3, we’re exploring friendship from a kid’s eye view. Have you ever seen your child walk up to a kid they’ve never met before on the playground and spend the whole day together like old friends? Children seem hardwired to create these instant, easy friendships, but for a lot of grownups, making friends doesn’t come so easily. In our quest to reconnect with the pure approach to friendship we see in kids, we talked to two guests with interesting perspectives on the topic: Karen Johnson, a writer and mother of three, and Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, author, and clinical psychologist.
