Meet The Kids: Oddball, endearing and quirky answers to life’s questions
Each month Front Porch writer Madeline Schroeder will visit one neighborhood elementary or middle school and chat with a group of kids from the same grade. She will rotate schools, talking to a different age group each time. Their best thoughts will be listed in this column. This month’s chat was about best friends with four Isabella Bird students with very different personalities—chatty, shy, energetic and funny. If you are a principal or teacher interested in being a part of “Meet The Kids” please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I help people see smiley faces. I like to see my friends happy so I help them be happy.
What else makes a best friend is you like them. You have to like them.
If I had a robot best friend she would bring me drinks and snacks and play with me. It would talk like a human and look like me.
Sloan Nelson, 5
I have too many friends to list.
I tell my friends jokes like knock knock.Who’s there? Banana. Banana who? Orange.
My robot best friend would love to color because I love to color. It could talk like any voice and be pink, purple, white and red. It would be made of clay.

Sisters are not BFFs. They’re the evilest enemies you can ever think of. I’ll crush them! She likes pushing me off the couch. I think it’s funny because I always land on a pillow attached to my wall.
My robot best friend would be a double-headed robot. It’s probotic so it has four eyes and can see anything it wants.
When you fall down, a best friend helps you up.

Rocco starts by saying the correct term is “BFF.”
I met my best friend at 15 months. We didn’t talk. We just wrestled.
If my friend’s upset we could go to a quiet place and talk, and sing when we’re done.
I’d like 50 friends a day, actually three.
My robot best friend would cook for me and give me a bath and stop my mom from making me go to bed every night.
