Are you a good friend? Having friends is just like having pets. I've got pets and friends. Firstly my pets would have to be dogs because they are playful.
Secondly my friends would have to be girls. Sometimes we have problems like fighting with each other and being mean to each other but then we're friends again.
If you have friends that's good because you can ask them to drop you off at home and they will. My friend Makayla does that all the time. Your friends could be older than you or younger. You can have a friend from high school, primary school or intermediate. There is no age limit to having friends.
Your friend can be a boy or girl. Most of my friends are girls. Your friend can be a Chinese, Indian, Cook-island, Maori or Pakeha.
They could live next-door to where you live. Your friends could even be your brother or sister. Your friend could have the same name as you. You could make a group up with your friends. That's what I did last year. So that's another thing you can try.
Also you can invite your friends to have lunch with you at the cafe or somewhere else or go to the movies together. You could have parties. That would be fun to. One more thing that you could do is to tell them to meet you at the pools after school or on the weekend.
If you don't have any friends ask some children if you can play with them. Or you can make up a game and go around the school and ask if they want to play with you.
That can make you have lots of friends. Friends help each other and stick up for each other. But when your friend does the wrong thing, don't be afraid to tell them how you feel.
If you join good company you will be a good person too so be careful about the friends you keep. Have good friends and be a good friend.
