I read a piece of news to tell that a kid had called police numerous times a day reporting a fake crime. Why the boy did that stupid thing? The policeman realized that the boy was too lonely.He bought the boy a toy trying to stop the boy called him again. In fact, the boy needs a friend more than a toy.
Snoopy is glad to have Woodstock as best friend.
Piglet feels lucky to have Winnie the Pooh as forever friend.
"We will be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?" asked Piglet
"Even longer”, Pooh answered
Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered
"Nothing”, said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”

We need to feel that we are a part of something bigger, that we care about others and the others care for us in return. Help the kids to take advantage of opportunities at school or among neighbors to expand their friendship base.
Choose the friend wisely
We are well aware that the company your kid keeps does have a negative or positive impact on him or her. One day, Susan asked her mother how to choose friends wisely.
Mommy, what is the meaning of friendship? How to choose friends wisely?
In a party, some laugh at you, some laugh with you. But in the end, after the fun, the one who stays to help you clean up the mess is your friend. And most of the time, she is not the one to make the mess.
Hey girl, did you make new friends in school?
Sandy is my new best friend. She is my classmate.
She never forgot to get me a souvenir from her vacation tour.
Willing to share the food with me
Wait for me even if I was far too late
Allow me to play her for a fool.
Sandy treats you as friend. Always remember be nice to other people. Things change, people change, connection stay.
2. Wonderful people right here
The kids might get plenty of friends via the medium of social media. There might be wonderful people out there but beware don't take appearance for facts. . Why not take the opportunity to get to know the people right here? Someone is near and close to them.
I love this story:
“Andy fell into conversation with one particular person during his computer journey and soon found that they had much in common and thoroughly enjoyed conversing with each other. Weeks later, during a computer conversation with this new friend, Andy house lost electrical power, shutting down his computer and cutting off his link to his friend. When the electricity came back on, Andy searched from his friend only to find that the friend, at the very same time, had also been cut off because of electrical outage. When the electricity went off on the street, it went off both of their houses, which were just doors away from each other.”
3. Thanks for the bad guys
There are good guys and bad guys in any screenplays. So do people surround us are friends or hatred guys. Those hatred guys may be our boss, our neighbor or co-workers. We can’t escape to deal with them. But It would be hard for the kid to deal with evil peers without parent support and guidance.
The kids might encounter the evil peers who are:
Ambitious, throwing tantrum, love to fight
Complaint all the time
Dramatic, love to show off or stealing the show
Self-center, neglect other people feeling
The kids have to learn that no one has the liability should treat them nicely (only parents can give them unconditional love). What you think become the words you say. It is the emotion behind the behavior. The emotion behind angry may because you worry you are not able to do anything to change the distasteful situation. Take the opportunity to understand the emotion help to transfer the negative energy to a positive one. It is not easy. It takes effort.
