My friend acts like she’s my mother, and I hate it.
She yells at me and even punishes me, and I don’t know if I should be her friend anymore.
—Friend or Mother
Have you told her the bossiness bugs you? Being politely direct should help you feel better and may help her change. Say, “I like when we have fun together, but I don’t like it when you yell at me. You’re my friend, not my mother.”
January is also a perfect time to sign up for a brand new after-school activity, like ice skating. Getting involved is a great way to make new friends.
