Dear Dish-It,

how do i make friends?


Dear sharratt,

There are a couple of things you can do to make new friends. Just remember to keep an open mind and do the best with what you’ve got.

Step 1: Expand Your Mind
Try to look past people’s clothes and the attitudes they present to you. I bet you’ll find plenty of fun, smart, cool decent people you could totally be friends with right under your nose!

Step 2: Expand Your Universe
School isn’t the only place where you can meet new people and find friends. Check out some community groups, get a part-time job, volunteer, go to concerts you like, etc. There are plenty of cool kids out there – you’ve just got to go out and find them!

Finally, Kidzworld just reviewed a cool new book called 30 Days To Finding & Keeping Sassy Sidekicks & BFFs: A Friendship Field Guide by Clea Hantman. It’s a book full of friendship-related tips, advice and exercises you can actually test and try. Check it out!
