Friends are an important part of growing up and we have some advice.

Tips for making friends
  • Show an interest in the other person and in the things they like doing
  • Don’t try and make them just do what you want all the time
  • Be yourself and don’t try to behave differently to fit in with new people

Friends
Watch out for
  • Peer pressure – this is where someone tries to get you to do something you don’t want to do by making you feel bad.
  • Show offs – some people act nicely when it’s just you and them, but make fun of you if others are around.
  • Fall outs – fall outs are horrible! Sometimes you can just say sorry and ask to be friends again. Sometimes you need to let things cool down – keep busy with someone or something else for a while. Childline website.
