During the past few weeks both of my daughters have celebrated their birthday. As they are now teens, we no longer have a birthday party as we did when they were younger: there are no balloons, party games and fun activities. Instead we make lunch for them and their friends (stir-fried noodles is always a favourite) with birthday cake for dessert. My daughters spend time with their buddies chatting, playing board games and even switching on the Wii to play some games their friends have brought with them.
As I watch my girls interact with their friends, I feel a sense of contentment. I see that they are happy, that they have good friends, and that they are able to socialise in a group setting. I am grateful that they feel a sense of belonging and that they have friends with whom they can spend their time at school.
