"Dear Carol, I'm worried I'll be all alone at my new school."
I got accepted into a special program for high school, but that means I'll be separated from all of my friends! I'm a straight-A student and really care about my education, but I'm worried I'll be all alone at my new school.
Dear New School,
Congratulations on the acceptance, and no worries about being alone. Kids at the new school will be looking for friends, and you'll find them in class and at after-school sports and activities. You've made friends before, so you know how to do it. The secret? Be friendly! Say hi, smile, give compliments, ask questions, be a good listener, look people in the eye and be yourself. Bonus: With texts, calls and visits, you can keep up with old friends, too.
We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
