Dear Boys & Girls,
Before long September will be here and it will be time for me to come to your classes! I can't wait. One of the first things we will be talking about is getting along with our friends. Before I come to your class, there are a few things I want you to think about. Think about who are your friends. Why do you enjoy being around them? How do people who are fun to be with act? What kind of person do you enjoy?
- Do you like to be with people who are bossy and always insist on their own way? You know the kind of person I mean ~ the one who says, "I'm going home if we can't do it my way!"
Would you rather be around someone who listens to your ideas, too.
- Do you enjoy being around someone who uses bad language?
Do you prefer someone who has enough respect for you that they wouldn't dare say bad things around you?
Think about all the things you like about the people you have chosen to be your friends. They probably like the same things you do, but at the same time, they are most likely someone who respects you and makes you feel good about yourself. We're going to be talking about making and keeping friends in September. Be sure to do some thinking about this and I know we will have some great discussions!
See you soon!
