Teen guide to better friends and relationships


We all know how important friends and relationships are. They can be a great source of joy and happiness in our lives. But they can be a source of pain if we’re not equipped with effective communication skills.

Unfortunately, most teenagers don’t receive many lessons in school about this significant area of life. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons lots of people experience so many issues in their connections with others.
