Being a Friend
Friends are important at every stage in life. Whether it's an opinion on a new dress, an ear to hear about a new crush or just a shoulder to cry on, friends are there when you need them most.
Friends are also important if you are in a sticky or even dangerous situation. If you have a friend you think is in trouble, here are some tips:
- Be a good listener--sometimes that's all someone wants.
- Don't judge.
- Offer advice, but don't tell someone what to do.
- Ask how you can help, but don't push. Encourage your friend to get help from an adult.
