Slide1

Friends and FriendshipsSlide2

Who is a Friend?A

friend is

someone you like and who likes you

.

It

is someone you can

talk

to. A friend is a person who

shares

similar interests and goals. For instance, you

may

enjoy going to the mall with your friends. Perhaps you study with your friend. You and your friend may have the same career goal of becoming a lawyer or a firefighter. The important quality you have in common is that you care about one another’s lives.Slide3

How do Friendships Begin?

Friendships

begin and develop when

people meet and like each other

.

You

do not automatically have a friend just because you meet someone. Some people are only

acquaintances

. An acquaintance is a person you

greet or meet fairly often

, but with whom you do not have a

close relationship

. It

may be a classmate, a neighbor, or the librarian at school.

Friendships usually

develop from the

acquaintances

that you have. They are formed with people you are interested in knowing better. They grow into

true and lasting

friendships as you learn more about one another.Slide4

Give and Take

Good

friendships are based on a

give and take

relationship. No two people are alike in what they

give

to you as a friend or in the benefits they

receive from you. All friends learn from each other. Slide5

Making New Friends

Beginning

a new

friendship

is not always easy, but you can be successful if you make the

effort

. Everyone had to make new friends at times. Old

friends may move away, or friendship may change as you

grow and develop

new

interest

. Making new friends is a

skill

that you can learn.

As you go through life, you will have many opportunities to

develop

new friendships. Some

may

begin easily. Others take more effect, and you may need to keep trying. Slide6

What Makes a Friend?

When

friendships are formed, they are based on

caring, sharing, and good communication

. These qualities, along with

trust

and reliability, help to

strengthen friendships. Doing your part with working with others and

praising

your friends when they do well are ways to show that you are a

good

friend. Slide7

Being Part of a Group

During

adolescence, most teens seek approval from their

peers

. Peers are people the

same

age as you. Your peers’ acceptance and recognition help you

develop a sense of

belonging

. Being accepted by your peers

strengthens

your self-esteem.

Peer pressure

is the influence your peers have on you, positive or negative. Your

reputation

, what others think of you, is sometimes based on the group you hang out with.Slide8

Changes in Friendships

Your

friendships will probably

change

over the years. Some of your friends may move away or transfer to different schools. Some of your friends may have new

responsibilities

after school. Friendships can also change when you and your friends discover new

interests and activities. The important point to remember about changes in friendships is that you

grow and learn

from them. You may not have chosen the changes, but you can use them to

understand

more about yourself and others.Slide9

Differences in Expectations

Has

there ever been a time when a

friend

let you

down

? Some changes in friendships are due to changing

expectations. Expectations are a person’s ideas of what should be or should happen.A common expectation in friendship is to have and to be a

best friend

. Best friends expect to be able to

confide

in and

trust

each other and share

common interests. Changes in friendships may occur when someone who was your best friend develops different interests and no longer shares

the same interest with you.

Changes in best friends are common as you learn what to

expect

from your friends and what your friends expect from you. Slide10
