Over the last few decades, the education system has forgotten to emphasize the importance of values such as friendship. However, there are many reasons of great importance to work from schools to inculcate the feeling of friendships based on the choice of the best feelings (sincerity, solidarity, loyalty, freedom, etc). One of them, and given the worrying reality that evidence shows us about violence, is that friendship is revealed as a factor of prevention and protection against the possibility and risk of suffering bullying.
