  • Is there someone who drives you crazy? What would you like to show or teach this person?
  • What do you like most about your best friend? What message could you give other people to make them more like him or her?
  • If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
  • What is the most important thing you’ve learned about being a good friend? How could you teach it to others?
  • If someone was sad or upset, what would you say to make things better?
