Since May started kindy, Aba has been encouraging her to make friends there.
Taught her to say “My name is May, what’s yours?” in Mandarin, as an introduction. (May couldn’t speak Mandarin at all yet).
After a month, May overcame her shyness and made her 1st friend (previously, she only had play-buddies-of-convenience).
Now, she has 4 friends.
