Suggestions for Community Friendliness:

Be a true friend. A true friend cares about how the things they say and do affect their friends. Leaving someone out or making mean spirited comments might seem funny or make you feel more included with a ‘popular crowd’, but do you really want friends who aren’t truly friendly? Challenge your girls to be friendly and helpful even when others around them are not. The only way to reduce the number of mean girls in your community is if more girls decide to be a true friend regardless of what others do.
