Is your friend a good friend?
Hi kids, show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are – so the saying goes. That simply means that if your friend is badly behaved and naughty but you spend most of your time with him or her, then – most likely, you are also badly behaved or soon will be.
What is a friend? A friend is someone you like and are chummy with; someone you share things with – like secrets. Someone you play with and whose advice you follow easily. Good friends help you get things done, like your homework or household chores. They help you stay out of trouble. Bad friends help you get into trouble.
How do you know if you have a bad friend?
- Bad friends don’t like being in trouble alone, so they pull you in to keep them company.
- They don’t have time for homework or other responsible things and they don’t want you to do yours either.
- They are always trying to take things away from you but never want to give you anything.
The wisest thing to do is avoid them.
The person you spend most of your time with has the most influence on you, so choose your friends wisely. If you want to grow up to be a wise, well-behaved and successful individual, then surround yourself with friends who have good qualities.
