True or False: When you make a mistake, you should honestly admit to having done it and apologize for it, if necessary.

What is Amanda's favorite movie/character?



Being thoughtfulness means that you are A) an active listener or B) only ever thinking about yourself?

A) An active listener - You must pay attention to what other people have to say in order to be thoughtful towards them later on.

A true friend will A) try to convince you to do something you don't want, or B) be sensitive to your wants and needs.
B) Be sensitive to your wants and needs - A true friend should make you feel comfortable when you hang out, not make you feel pressured to do things you aren't sure about.
When first becoming friends with someone, you should share A) your likes, dislikes, goals, etc., or B) your SIN and bank account information.
A) Your likes, dislikes, goals, etc. - Even friends shouldn't normally know private information that doesn't effect them, but they should be able to get to know your personality and passions.
Despite what some people say, manners A) really don't matter anymore, or B) can still go a long way to help you make new friends.
B) Still go a long way in making new friends - More people than not won't want to be around you if you're rude, so your chances of meeting cool new friends are way higher if you just put a little effort into minding your manners.

What sport does Brianna enjoy?



What does friendship mean?

Friendship is when you enjoy hanging out, talking to, and being with another person who has similar interests as you.

When we feel like we can't _____ somebody, we start not to believe what they say, and come to not rely on what they do either.
Trust - Once that's broken, it can be hard to repair a friendship, unless that person really tries to make up for it!

Since Brianna and Karly both like _______, they have a similar interest that can help them connect to each other.  

Soccer; Bri and Karly both like soccer! 

While it's important to have a sense of ______, you should be careful not to make too mean of jokes, or laugh at something insensitive directed towards someone else.
Humour - But the better of a friend you are with somebody, the more you should be able to laugh with and sometimes even at each other.

How can we make more friends?

Joining clubs, being on teams, or even talking to a classmate to see if you have anything in common.

What are the 'magic words' that are normally a very important part of taking responsibility for an action?
I'm sorry!
Explain why good hygiene is important, even if you don't feel like you have a lot of friends.
Basically, because even strangers will notice if you have bad hygiene and react negatively to you, and you never know when one of those strangers might want to offer you a job or have to sit next to you in class.

Amanda and Grace go to the same school and are both 17 years-old. How can they become better friends?
