You have a right to choose your friend
By Josefina Gabriel |
Hey kids, you also have a right to have friends. Having a friend is a good thing and it’s nice to have a friend or friends. Everyone wants to have a friend instead of being alone.
However there are good friends and bad friends. A good friend can be a boy or a girl.
Even as a child, you have to choose a good friend. Because bad friends are not good. Bad friends bring problems.
How can you know that your friend is not a good friend? You can know by seeing and hearing what your friend is saying or doing. Bad friends do bad things and they say bad things.
A bad friend wants you to do the thing that your parent said it is not good to do.
But a good friend always talks about good things, a good friend wants you to obey teachers, a good friend wants you to behave well at school, to help elders with work at home, to do your school work, a good friend wants you to respect your parents.
Those are good things to do.
But insulting, stealing, and joining bad groups of people is a bad thing to follow.
So you must pick the friend who is nice and talks about good things always.
