Children are adaptable. More often than not, moving to a new place is exciting, new, and special. The thrill of the new overrides what is left behind and the rest is smooth sailing. However, what if it isn’t like that?

One way to try and attain some smooth sailing is by trying to find new friends in the new place you are in. Nothing will replace old friends, but you can always make new memories. Making friends is hard, and finding your place in a new school where almost everything changes is harder, and almost scary. An effective way to find your role in school is to be yourself, but also try to be nice. Being a little nice goes a very long way, and will help you find the friends who are like you, and are like you.

Another way to make friends is to meet a lot of people. Talking to people in school, around the neighbourhood, and in tuitions about the things you like. Shared interests are a good way to start a conversation which will lead to friendship. Walking on unfamiliar terrain is hard, but once it becomes familiar, you can start running.
