There are these boys in my class that inappropriately touch my BFF and I'm not comfortable with it. The other day, one of the boys grabbed her butt and she didn't do anything about it. I don't want this to go any farther because it might lead to something more serious!
One time a guy tried to touch me and I grabbed his hand and twisted it. I want my BFF to be strong like me. I want to help her, but I don’t want them to start bothering me too.
Hey, girl. This is definitely an issue that needs to be taken seriously. You really need to sit your friend down and talk to her about what has been going on. Ask her how she feels about it and then let her know your feelings.
If she doesn't understand that this is a serious situation, talk to a trusted guardian or school administrator who will listen and help. Try your best to avoid the situation at school while you are trying to get your friend to speak up and ask for help.
Be supportive of your friend and let her know that you are there for her.
