Loneliness

It’s 3 pm and you have just reached home from school. The house is quiet as everyone is not at home. Your parents are at work and your siblings are still at school. Only Jojo, your dog comes running up to you, barking, “Aarf aarf aarf!” “Sigh Jojo…it’s just you and me again.” After feeding Jojo, you start doing your homework. Halfway through your Math homework, you start feeling lonely. You wish there is someone around to talk to you. You start daydreaming and wonder what else you can do after you complete your homework…

Does the above scenario sound familiar?  If you have ever felt this way before, you are not alone!

At Tinkle Friend Helpline, many children call to share that they sometimes feel lonely, or bored.
