So it might be a good idea to get some advice from an adult you trust before taking this step.
Also, before you talk to your friend, try to answer these questions:
- Have you had any serious conversations with this friend before?
- How did they respond?
- Do you think your friend is also worried about their behaviour ?
- How do you think they’ll react if you tell them you’re worried about their behaviour?
It’s possible your friend won’t understand why you’re worried about their behaviour. And they may not be ready to talk to you about what’s been happening.
If so, they could get quite defensive, angry or upset. They might even try to turn it into a big joke.
