Sara's Words of Wisdom
This is what Sara wrote for a homework assignment. Interesting take on what has been happening to her lately. My kid is no saint but she sure has a good heart. These are her words on friendship: I think it is important to show our friends we care and appreciate them because we love them and we don't want them to feel sad or lonely. If you don't pay attention to your friends or if you are unkind to them, they might feel unwanted and they won't want to be friends with you. Then you will feel lonely and unwanted. If you are a bully, you won't have any friends because no one likes a bully. If you don't have any friends, nothing will be any fun. If you show you care and appreciate your friends, more and more people will want to be your friend. To show you care and appreciate your friends, be kind to them and don't tease them or hurt them. Don't puppy dog them either. *** That scares them and will make you seem crazy. Being kind to others will also make you popular among the other kids. Don't be a bully. Be kind to others. In other words, be a friend. *** When Sara gets excited when friends come over, she jumps up and down, hugging them (much like a little puppy). We've told her to be considerate and give people their space.
