“What’s on Your Mind?” Friend, July 2018
As you get older, it can be hard to know how to act around people of the other gender. But remember these tips, and you’ll be off to a good start!
Focus on friendship. Save “going out” for later—when you’re 16 or older.
Everyone’s bodies are changing, and that can feel awkward. Commenting on someone else’s body can make them feel uncomfortable. Instead, try complimenting them on what they do.
Remember: it’s never OK to say something mean about someone’s body.
Look for what you have in common. You might find more than you think!
We hope this helps. Thanks for writing!
