Dear Shayna B.,
Every day, when I go to school there is always this kid that bothers me. Whenever I ask my teacher to take care of the matter, the teacher does not help, and now I always feel like the kid will never stop bothering me. I also feel like this kid wants to be my friend, but I don’t know how to tell him that’s not how to make friends! What should I do?Written by,

Dear Extremely Enraged Eli,
This kid doesn’t know how to make friends. I think he wants to be friends with you, but doesn’t know how to show it. If you include him in games, it will make him feel more welcome. He won’t hang around you annoyingly, because you’ll have found out he’s fun to hang out with and you’ll be friends. There is a possibility, however, that he will still annoy you, and if he does, find a big box and ship him to outer space. There is no one to annoy there..at least for now!Best of luck,
