Friends form the most important part of our childhood and give meaning to our life. Being with friends is important not only because we play and have fun with them, but also because they support and help us when we are in need.
Our fifth graders were asked to write on small pieces of paper words that express their belief about friendship and how meaningful it is for them.
Love, trust, help, support, sympathy, laughter... are some of the words the children used to refer to their friends.
What one can easily infer is that no matter how old we are, good friends always play a significant role in our life and we turn to them when we want help, advice and someone to hear us.
