My Dear Friend Cassie is away for three days and I am missing her terribly. Despite the fact that she is 7,000 KM away living in the UK we usually get together most days for a chat online and discuss plans for the website and newsletter; but alas she is in Scotland staying with friends and won’t have access to a computer. It got me thinking about friendship and how important it is to us. I know Cassie keeps me sane and I would be lost without her. There is nothing I cannot tell her and she knows me inside out in fact we are so in sync sometimes it is scary. I don’t know what I would do without her; and it makes me realize how blessed I am to have her in my life.

Friendship is extremely important for our children too. Friendships help children learn social skills, problems solving skills and help to build their self-confidence. Some children have trouble making friends so we may have to give them a helping hand. If your child is shy find ways for him to build up his self esteem  so that he can feel more confident when around his peers. Get your children involved in activities where they can make new friends if they are having problems finding friendship in school.

Have a great day!!
