At URSTRONG, we call disagreements with friends Friendship Fires®. It’s important for students to understand that conflict is a normal part of a relationship. As Friendship Fact #1 teaches us, “No friendship (or relationship) is perfect.”
Friendship Fires® are like little obstacles in our friendships. Some obstacles are easy to overcome, while others require serious consideration and thought to make it through. In friendship, we encounter obstacles all the time!
This lesson is designed to get students thinking about the origins of Friendship Fires® along with the processes and skills required to put those Fires out and get friendships feeling good again.
