One of your friends has shared some of his/her problems with you. Your friend wants advice on how to handle these difficulties because things seem to be going from bad to worse. In fact, your friend is becoming panicky. Write a post/comment/letter to your friend, giving both your advice on how to relieve the panic and your suggestions about how to proceed next. In the opening paragraph, identify the problem and make sure it is serious enough to warrant such a response from you.
If you suspected, but had no evidence, that a friend of yours had committed a crime, what would you do?
What family member, friend, or acquaintance do you wish you were closer to?
How do you define the word “friend?”
Under what circumstances would you persuade a friend to do something that might create problems for him or her? If a friend tried to persuade you to do something that might bring trouble, what would you do?
What advice would you give to a friend who you felt was making a hasty or unwise decision? What is your experience of the kind of advice adults tend to give teenagers about falling in love?
Imagine you have a friend who thinks deeply and reacts sensitively to events around him or her. Your friend has just written you a letter saying that human life is full of more problems and sorrow than joy and hope. Your friend goes on to say, “What’s the use of living in such a ‘sea of troubles’?” Write a response to your friends letter.
