That afternoon, we sat down and talked about friendship and "How to Do Friendship" and we made a list of Friendship Rules, which I will list below.
I told my Dad about it, and he helpfully reminded me that this was more like the blind leading the blind, because historically I haven't been very good at friendship either. So if you have suggestions for additions to the list, please let me know. Leave a comment maybe.
|Friendship "DOs"||Friendship "DON'TS"|

|Let friends finish talking||Grab|
|Take turns winning |

|Work together to decide|
the rules of the game

|Make sure you know the rules|

before you start playing
