Best of friends
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience. This is the ideal life. – Mark Twain, writer
FRIENDS offer us a shoulder to cry on when we are feeling down. Besides this, they provide us with companionship, and we can learn many things from our friends. For children, friends can help improve their social skills. They learn to communicate with one another and learn the importance of co-operation.
Let’s read what our young readers have to say on the topic, My Best Friend.
Nicole Ong Hui Ting, nine, writes: “My best friend is my brother. He is eight years old. He is friendly and kind. He also plays toys with me. His favourite food is grilled chicken. I love him very much.”
“I have known my bff (best friend forever) since Year One. She is funny and smart. She teaches me when I have problems with my homework. She travels a lot and most of the time she brings me souvenirs from the countries she visited. We nicknamed her Harry Potter because of the shape of her spectacles,” writes Chang Zhi En, nine.
Amshavahini believes good friends should stay loyal to each other. “Respect, encourage and stand by your friends. These are important elements in any friendship,” writes Amshavahini.
