Being a Good Friend

In order to have good friends you must be a good friend.  The following are different ways good friends treat each other:

  • Good friends do not put each other down or hurt each other’s feelings
  • Good friends do not put conditions on your relationship (example I will like you even more if you do this for me…)
  • Good friends help each other solve problems, not tell each other what to do
  • Good friends give each other compliments
  • Good friends can disagree without hurting each other
  • Good friends give each other room to change

 On your weekend outings, engage your child in the following questions:

  • What qualities do you look for  in a friend?
  • What does it mean when you hear “in order to have good friends you have to be a good friend”?
  • Some say a true friend is somebody who knows everything about you and still likes you.  What do you think that means?
  • How do you tell the difference between true friends and frenemies?
  • What are the benefits of having friends who are different from us?
