Relationships

Next, YOU will be looking at RELATIONSHIPS

The way that people deal with each other is complicated. YOU know that.

You either experience it yourself or see how others sometimes struggle.

The relationship between a child and the parent is sometimes fine but often tense.

Feelings come into play. How sensitive one is affects the relationship.

Feeling good about yourself certainly helps.

And knowing HOW to deal with certain problems also helps.

Activity 1:

Read the story below and then answer the questions that follow:
