In Your Words
Check out what your friends have to say!
“I came into this program getting used to a new relationship, but had pushed a very toxic ex out of my
life. I didn’t know anything about boundaries or grooming tactics…I’m glad I got to see your
presentation because now I CAN identify how toxic and unhealthy the relationship was.”
“I learned how to make friends and how to respect them. I also learned how important it is to be kind
to others and to treat everyone with respect.”
“This program validated how I felt about relationships.”
“I learned about how much compliments mean in friendships.”
“Conflict day helped me realize that conflict is an essential part of life that I must learn how to handle.”
“I learned how to be a better friend and how to stand up to bullying.”
Ways to Bond
Human beings have a natural desire to bond with others, whether it’s with family members,
friends, a close friend, or a partner.
Having people in our life with whom there’s mutual trust

intentional about cultivating our relationships in order to stay connected.
