After reading this online, many people recalled their own childhood, how they ate lunch alone, were bullied, and also made friends for life.
“Growing up at 11 yrs old, I was that kid desperately looking for a friend. We moved across town and I was met with bullies and isolation. It was beyond awful. Tell your son he changed someone’s life in a way he’ll never understand,” one person commented.
“Who hasn’t been the new kid or even the person who walks into a party of strangers and wishes someone like your son would throw them a lifeline? Good for him and good for you for raising such a kind kid,” one user wrote.
“I was a new kid at school in grade 3 when my family moved to Alberta. The mother of the girl who has now been my best friend for over 50 years told her the morning of that 1st day ” If there is anyone new in your class, you make sure you go over and make friends with them,” another one wrote.
