True friends keep on giving to each other, that's one of the special bonuses about friendship. Giving is part and parcel of friendship.

types of fear
make life much more challenging for children to establish lifetime friendships, it's still possible.

value of friendship
and want to have a few close friends they can trust and who care about them.
They begin to understand the
true meaning of friendship.
