Think About it Questions
  • Have you ever felt guilty about something you did (or didn’t do) to a friend? How did you handle that? Were you able to make up with the friend?
  • Why do you think some kids have a hard time apologizing? How hard or easy is it for you to apologize?
  • Think about a time that someone apologized to you. Do you think they were genuinely sorry? How could you tell?
  • Dr. Friendtastic says that guilt can be a useful emotion, even though it’s uncomfortable. Do you agree? Why or why not?

How to Submit YOUR Question About Friendship!
