FEATURE – What Kids Think takes you inside the minds of our precious little ones. Here, we hear from Bella, an 8-year-old student at George Washington Academy who loves gymnastics, animals and cooking.
What can I do if I get nervous doing things in front of people?
If you have to do something for your school, you can practice in front of your parents or your siblings; if you don’t have siblings, you can practice in front of your friends. You will soon get the hang of it and be able to do it in front of people. If you think people won’t like what you present, you need to remember that if you like it and others don’t, it doesn’t matter. If you like it, that is what’s most important.
What are some ways to make new friends at school?
You can find people in your class and see what they like to do; see if you have anything in common with them. If you have some things in common, you can get their phone number and give it to your mom to see if they would like to play. You can also find people during recess and see if those kids have something in common with you.
What can parents do to help kids be happy?
Spending time together is important. Parents can have breakfast and dinner together as a family. You can go on “dates” with your parents, where you spend time alone with your mom or dad. Parents can also help their kids find new friends and help them spend time with kids their own age.
