So... value your friends when they're still your friends... and teach your kids to make friends?

I've been living abroad in many countries since the age of 5 and have long accepted that friends come and go. You drift away from some of your favourite ones, sometimes make new ones, and keep a handful for life(hopefully).

Enjoy the moment. And have good memories. And if you need to kick their arse, do it while you can so you wouldn't be wishing you had many years later.

Not sure how to teach kids to make friends, apart from teaching them usual things like politeness and generosity. I don't have kids, so this is a wild guess.

But don't friendships just happen?
