There is truly nothing like having friends.
Growing up with friends, sharing experiences, bonding with each other, and eventually becoming adult friends has so many benefits. Friendships will boost your happiness especially when they are lifelong friends. 💗
My son is an only-child, and I strive to make sure he has friends. He actually has some very close friends since he was a toddler, and although at times its hard for them to meet-up because of the parent's busy schedule (including myself) he knows they are his friends.
