I have been Penpalling since I was about ten years old. My longest Penpals date back to 2000 AD that are still in contact. At one time, the most Penpals I've had is about 80 to 100 from all over the World.
Please be warned about PRISON MAIL and GHANA MAIL - google it if You think You get some and Someone wants You to respond. FRIENDSHIP BOOKS and SWAPPABLE ITEMS are a great way to get to know Other People and network in the Penpal Community.
WHY HAVE A PENPAL?
Introverted tweens may particularly benefit socially from having a pen pal. A pen pal gives them the time and space to find the right words (they often freeze if they have to talk before they think) and naturally promotes a deep, less superficial relationship that introverts crave.
As someone who needs to work on their patience, letter writing has been good practice! It also means that you and your pen pal will be a part of this long process together! Getting a pen pal is fun as well as rewarding.
