True Friendship According to 2nd-Grade Boys

Posted on | Braxton Brady

Our virtue this month at PDS is the True Friend.

Stephanie Taylor’s 2nd grade class came up with the following definitions for true friendship. I thought they were worth sharing.

Friendship is having the courage to…

do the right thing when no one is watching.

lay down your life for one another.

follow your dreams.

stand up for someone else.

help others up.

do what you say.

help someone when they are sad.

say your sorry.

have compassion when someone is hurt.

go play with someone who doesn’t have anyone to play with.

be nice.


help someone even if they say they don’t need any help.

make mistakes.

jump off something 14 feet tall before another to show it’s not scary.

be willing to try new things.

be faithful.

help others when they need help.

help someone even when you don’t have.

stop someone from bullying another person.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to lead our Building Boys, Making Men Program where we strive to teach our boys what it means to be a godly man and how that fleshes out using our 7 Virtues of Manhood.
