Session 7: Getting on with others
It would be helpful if you could complete this session with an adult or an older sibling who is happy to talk with you and work through the session. If there is no one available to talk with, jot down your responses after you have thought carefully about the questions.
Take a moment to think about the many different types of relationships that you have both in and out of school, for example, you and your teacher, you and your best friend, you and the person behind the til in the supermarket.

What about your next door neighbour?
We have relationships with people at different levels. Not everyone is our best friend. We change how politely we speak to different people. This is normal.
