How to be friends with more than one person at a time
"Two's company, Three's allowed!"
◊ Play games that more than two people can play happily together.
◊ Jealousy doesn't help - if you do feel jealous, don't be mean about it.
◊ If someone is mean to you, being mean back to them only makes things worse.
◊ Talk to each other - say how you feel without blaming your friends.
(Use "I" messages.)
◊ Say sorry if you have been mean.
◊ Forgive each other - holding grudges doesn't help.
◊ Saying secrets behind each others' back is not helpful either
- think how you would feel.
◊ It's normal for friends to have disagreements
- it's better to say -
"We are still friends, but we are having a disagreement"
- than to say -
"We're not friends anymore"
"Friends always, fights sometimes."
