  1. Being a friend is like a promise. You are promising to help them when they need it, and to be their friend forever.

    If you say to someone that you are his/her friend, but then you betray him/her, you are not his/her friend and you are breaking the promise.

    One of the most important elements of being a friend, is to be honest with yourself. Say that there is a really popular girl/guy, and all of the ‘popular’ kids are friends with him/her, and you want to be part of that group, so you pretend to be his/her friend, when you don’t actually like him/her.

    It’s like if you promised to invent the Unicorn Creating Machine, and everyone will be able to use and it will be called the UCM. You probably will not be able to keep that promise and the person who you promised to will be really disappointed. It’s the same for friendships.

    Another important thing is to be there when your friends need your help.

    I am not saying that if you are in Canada and your friend is in Australia, and they need help to fix something, that you should take a plane just for that.

    What you could do, though, is to message them. If you heard that your friend is having a hard time, message them. You can make them feel a lot better, and help them.

    Another example is that if your friend is getting bullied, and you are with them, don’t be just a bystander, and take action. Because the bullie is not mean, but we need everyone’s help to make him/her understand that he/she is doing is wrong.

    What I really value about my friendships, is to being able to share Ideas with people my age and/or my same likes and/or interests, meeting new cultures and playing with them.

  2. I think my good friend is peaceful and calm and we have common interests. My good friend tolerates my temper for one week, because this kind of person is rare. Good friends do not tell lies. Good friends share things like food and equipment with each other. Good friends care about each other. Good friends help each other with problems.

  3. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The important things about being a friend are to play with them, care for them, trust and communicate.

    Why is it important?

    When you don’t have friends you are going to get bored at recess. You are going to be lonely and everybody is going to ignore you. Having friends is important because it teaches you to care because when somebody falls or someone breaks a leg, you just walk around and do nothing. Everybody thinks that you are dumb.
    If you trust someone it is clear that they are going to do anything for you. When you communicate with friends you can tell them to come to his house to play with them or tell them any problems.

    I think it is important to value a friend

    The value in friends means how much that friend cares about you. Does the friend care about you or not? If you have a friend and that friend does not have big value, it means you are not his friend.

  4. Being kind, play right, have empathy, because if you don’t be nice, play right, and have empathy, your friends will start to be bad to you and not play with you. What I value the most for about my friendships, is trust.

  5. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The most important element of being a friend is always telling the truth unless you are doing an April fools day prank. It’s important to tell the truth because when my friend tells the truth I know I can trust them.

    Another most important element of being a friend is not breaking promises, because if you do your friend will probably not trust you anymore, and also then I know that I can trust them if I tell them a secret that they will not tell the secret to anyone else or make fun of the secret.

    It is also very important to try not to be mean to your friend. It is important to try not to be mean to your friend, because they will feel very hurt not physically but emotionally, and also if you make fun of them then you are a very bad friend. And another very important thing is to have fun. It is very imported to have fun with your friends, because if you don’t have fun with your friends then that means that you are actually not friends because everyone who has a friend has fun with them unless you only pretend to be there friend.

    The things that I Value the most about my friendships are that I can trust them, that I can tell them things that I never told anyone, that I can share my problems, Ideas and secrets with them, that they don’t laugh about something that I do, that they are there for me if I need them and that whenever I need help they help me.

    I think that friends are very precious. 🙂

  6. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The most important elements of being a friend are to have fun and to talk. Because If you feel sad or you have a problem, you can talk with your friends and make you feel happy. Sometimes my friends supported me when I don’t know English word or how to use it.
    Recently, I played with my friends on the playground, I could teach them how to speak in Japanese and my friends shared with me their noodles and snacks.
    If you hate somebody who is your friend and one day they are not a friend. It is so lonely, so you have to keep your friends happy and always have fun!
    The thing I value most about my friendships is to be fun and smile because if you feel sad or not fun, your friends feel sad. I think your friends know about you. I think your best friend should know about you a lot.
    I really like friends because friends are so kind to me, really respectful and make me so happy. I like going to my friend’s house or shopping and going to the fair. Friends can make good experiences and good days.

    I like friends!!!

  7. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The most important element of being a friend is to make your friend smile and make them happy because friends are supposed to make you happy. If they don’t make you happy, there is no point of making a friend. Also being part of a life means being there for your friend when they need you. You might also need your friend and your friend will help you or they are not a great friend.

    A good friend is a respectful, kind, caring and a person who makes you laugh and smile when you feel bad. They also support you when you feel bad. You also have to support your friends or you are not a great friend. So you also have to make your friends smile, laugh, and you have to support your friends!! Some people make friends by common interest. If you have common language, it might be easier and better to communicate. Some people are friends with people with the same language because it is easier to communicate.

    The thing I value the most about friendship is a smile and fun because if you don’t have fun with your friend, you have a bad friend. Also, if you don’t smile while your friend is trying to make you happy, they would think that you don’t like her/him. Then, they might get hurt and might not like you anymore.

    Having a friend is a good thing because they make you feel better and if your friends don’t have a common language with you, then you might get better at english or the same language they speak!! Maybe you might teach your friends how to speak your language!!

    I like having friends!!!!

  8. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?
    What are the most important element of being a friend and why?
    The most important elements of being a friend are showing empathy, trusting and having fun. These three are important because when a friend has empathy, I could feel better and relaxed. I can talk more with my friend and tell my feeling. I think trusting is most important because I know that my friend is always next to me, I can trust my friend and tell my secret and my friend can trust me, too. If my friend doesn’t has sense of trust it can have big mistake. The last important element is having fun, having fun can get better between friend. It can help between friend like play with friend, talking more about feeling, talk fun stories or scary stories or wierd stories, share things and don’t tell lies.
    What do you value most about your friendship?
    My most value about my friendship is trusting, because trusting can be make things bad, but it can make better between friend. If my friend trusting me my friend could tell secret to me.

  9. The 3 most important elements of being a friend is…

    – To show that your friend is important to you so that they feel warm and happy on the inside of them.

    – Always care for them when they are hurt, when they don’t feel good or when they are stuck with any work. If you do this, they might do the same back to you.

    – Always tell your friend to make the right decisions when they are choosing between good and bad. Also help them make decisions when they can’t make up their mind them self. If you help them make a decision, a good one, then both your friend and you won’t get into trouble or get hurt.

    What I value most about friendships is that one person doesn’t talk behind the others’ back. When they do, they will both feel really bad.

  10. Friends are important because they encourage you, make you feel safe and good about yourself, and they help you and keep you company.

    If you are someone’s friend you half to be there for them, and always have their back. If your friend hangs out with other people and has more than 1 close friend, it’s okay. No matter how much they hangout with someone else they will always love you as a friend and support you.

    Friends are 1 of the most important parts of life especially in middle school through university. They spend the most time with you and get you through the hardest parts of your life. Always value your friends. They care about you and you don’t want them to feel like they aren’t a good enough friend. I love spending time with my friends, I always value all of them but I know that sometimes some of my friends don’t feel as valued because sometimes they feel like I shouldn’t spend as much time as I do with my other friends. I understand what they feel, but I value them as much as I value all of my friends.

    Valuing all of your friends is important even if other friends aren’t as close to you. The most important thing is to always make sure your friends feel good about themselves and their relationships, and that they don’t have any regrets. Friends are a very, very important part of life and you must try to never lose them.

  11. The three most important parts of friendship? Well I think Trust is one of them, here are my reasons why. If you don’t have trust then you can’t trust them with secrets or to do something properly for you, also if you don’t have trust it can cause conflict and then you will lose you’r friendships. Another important part of friendship is inside jokes, inside jokes are jokes that you make with each other because they’re funny but only to you these keep friendships funny, the 3rd most important part of friendship is encouragement because friends encourage you to do anything you want to do and also they make you feel nice and welcomed and appreciated, they also help you if something you can’t do alone they will always be the first to volunteer if it can help you in anyway. also they will always make sure you’re ok and wont stop till you are better, also they will stand up for you when someone or something bad is happening to you. they also don’t judge you if you do weird things so you can be yourself around them and you can feel comfortable with them. and that is why friends are good, and also why everyone need friends.

  12. Having a friends is a great things.Everyone like to having friends.Friends can listen somethings you doesn’t like to share with other.Friends can help you went ever you need.Being a friends is important to help them out.

    Myself I think the two most important element of being a friends is to be friendly because if you not being friendly to them .Your friends can not trust you or even doesn’t be your friends anymore.

    Secondly is caring because you show your friends that you respect,integrity to them,they can trust you and feel safe.

    The thing that I most value about friendships is that I have a friends that I can trust so I can tell things that I doesn’t want to share with other people .

    Second is caring because I want a friends that they respect and empathy to my so that I can feel safe went play or talk with them.

    I very like to having friends.

  13. The most important elements of being a friend is boosting each others self esteem and always having their back, encourage them and don’t judge them respect who they are and their choices.
    Why? Because you aren’t there to make them upset you are there to make them feel good about themselves and help them when they need it, if they are upset you keep them company and help them get better. You don’t judge them because they are who they are and you accept and respect that, you also want to boost their self esteem because you want them to try new things.

    Things I value most about about friendships is that I can always rely on them,they always have my back when i’m upset. When i’m angry or sad I always have company and help me feel better.They can help me when i’m stuck in a problem or have a problem. They are always honest with me about my looks,work or even the choices I make. I can trust my friends not to tell anyone the secrets we share. I value that they can make me happy and I can always count on them when i’m upset or angry.

  14. Having friends is a great thing. Friends are always people you look to when you need help, and friends always look out for you. When being a friend it is important to help them out. You should be there to help them when they are in a difficult situation you should help them get through it. You should also stand up for them if they are being bullied or physically or emotionally hurt. And most importantly, you should trust your friends. Trust is one of the main things that binds friends together. If you don’t trust your friends, then they are not good friends
    These things are important because if you don’t help your friend, that is not caring for them. Caring for another person is what friendship really means. If you don’t really care about your friend, you are not really their friend.
    The thing I value the most about my friendships is that I can enjoy time with my friends. Even though I usually only see my friends at school, it is still good to have people I know, trust and like to enjoy time with around me on at least five days a week. Friends are great to have.

  15. This is a three-part question – What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    To me a friend is someone who looks after you, they are loyal, honest, and they are always dependable. A friend is someone who is close to you, a best friend is as close as family. You have lots of fun with them, but all friends have fights. Most people make up and some hate you and others don’t.

    Friends can hold secrets and look after you, most friends stand up for each other when bullied or sad. When you see true friendship, you see laughter, enjoyment, and happiness. Some people travel a lot so it is a bit hard to keep the same friends. So sometimes it is hard to make new friends (I know from experience).

    It is important to value your friends because they can stand by you if you are nervous or scared. But especially if you are sad, they will calm you down and ask if you need help. With that you can also talk about you feelings, good or bad. They will care for you with all of their hearts.
    Friends are the best!!!

  16. The three most important parts of friendship? Well I think Trust is one of them, here are my reasons why. If you don’t have trust then you can’t trust them with secrets or to do something properly for you, also if you don’t have trust it can cause conflict and then you will lose you’r friendships. Another important part of friendship is inside jokes, inside jokes are jokes that you make with each other because they’re funny but only to you these keep friendships funny, the 3rd most important part of friendship is encouragement because friends encourage you to do anything you want to do and also they make you feel nice and welcomed and appreciated. also help you if something you can’t do alone they will always be the first to volunteer if it can help you in anyway. also they will always make sure you’re ok and wont stop till you are better. also they will stand up for you when someone or something bad is happening to you. they also don’t judge you if you do weird things so you can be yourself around them and you can feel comfortable with them. and that is why friends are good, and also why everyone need friends.

  17. The most important thing is when there is a problem they will be there, when you feel bad they will be there and help you and they will all ways be nice and help you, ebing a friend is a good thing and when you have one there really helpfull and they will be there when you need. Being a friend is a good and happy thing beacuse you have some one to play with and you can tell them things that make you feel bad and they will help you.

    Having a friend can help you do things that you can’t do and can help you when every you need is you are sad and feeling super bad they will help you feel better and make you happy again. You can can tell them thing that you keep to your self and they won’t tell any one. If some made you feel really bad they will stand on your side and help you. They can also under stand you and help you and make you feel really good and happy.

    Friend can help you do thing that you can’t and they will all ways stand on your side to help you.

  18. I think that the most important elements of being a friend is respecting each other, having fun together, not telling each other’s secrets, support them when you think they need it, don’t ignore them when they are talking, do not be too bossy when they try to do something fun with you, if your friend is hurt or inbrast don’t laugh at them you should go to them and help them, do not push them to do something and do not let them down.

    All of those things are really important for me because if you do one of those things wrong you can really hurt that person’s feelings and if you really want to be that person’s friend you will not be very happy because that person will not want to stay around you anymore.

    What i value most about my friendship is that i have friends that will include me in there conversation and to do that they say things like “and what about you Emma”for example, that will want me to do things with them, friends that will go too me when i am having a bad day and and try their best to cheer me up and friends that can tell me some of their secrets and not tell anyone my secrets.

  19. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    Friends are one of the most important people in everyone’s life, especially for me. Friendship is what is happening when you are with your friends and that is when you are feeling good.

    One of the most important elements of being friends is simply being kind. Kind is a simple word but means a lot. It means of many positive words. Kind means being respectful, caring, shares, and do their best to treat others nicely. Being friends also This then all relates to friendship.

    Friendship is when you and your friends help to push each other up. They develop with each other and learn from others. I value this because we can learn from my friends. Friendship keeps me happy and we all need to be happy.

    In conclusion, Friends and friendship are very important to me and should be to everyone. Valuing friendship is important. I like to have friends and spend time with them, they are very special to me.

  20. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friends

    Everyone needs friends so they’re not lonely, and everyone is happy. And a lot of people want to have fun and a lot of fun happens with friends. If everyone has good friends there won’t be as many problems. And having friends is good because if you have some problems they can help you.

    What I value most about friends is that they’re funny, and they entertain me. More than less they want to hang out with you and if there very good friends they alway want to chat with you. Friends are honest and tell you a lot of secrets ,they trust you.

    They stick up for you when you are being bullied, and make you feel better when your down. There always there to help, and there always willing to talk about things.

    A lot of the people that don’t have friends are lonely or sad if they had friends they might feel better. With friends you feel more comfortable and. Your friends usually like the same things.
    You laff out loud with friends.
    Everyone should have friends

  21. The most important thing about being a friend is that you are there for them and they are there for you. When you have a problem or if there is a conflict between 2 people, they will vouch for you and be there for you.
    You need friends because if you have a problem you can get help from your friends. When they’re in trouble you will help them and they can trust you.
    What I value about my friends is that they are fun to be with and you can trust them.
    Most importantly I can have fun with a person I trust who will not hurt me and who knows my secrets and will not tell anybody.
    I value having friends because without them my life would be boring and no one would understand me.

  22. Friends are something everyone should have. They comfort you, they help you, they make you laugh and they also help you when you don’t feel good. These are just some of the elements of being a friend and why…

    – To show that your friend is important to you so that they feel warm and happy on the inside of them.

    – Always care for them when they are hurt, when they don’t feel good or when they are stuck with any work. If you do this, they might do the same back to you.

    – Always tell your friend to make the right decisions when they are choosing between good and bad. Also help them make decisions when they can’t make up their mind them self. If you help them make a decision, a good one, then both your friend and you won’t get into trouble or get hurt.

    What I value most about friendships is that they don’t talk behind each others’ back. They tell each other the truth and do not hide many things from each other. When they do, they will both feel really bad and things like their friendship won’t turn out very fun, helpful, comforting warm and nice.

  23. Having a friend is like having another person in your family. When you go to school, they greet you at every morning for you to have another good day. A purpose of having friends are that:

    1. They will always try to help you if you need help.
    2. They are your trustworthy friends, so you could tell something that maybe is a secret.
    3. They don’t break their promises, and if they forget, they will do anything to get you back.
    4. They will cheer you up if you are sad or mistreated.
    5. They will always play with you and standby your side.

    But sometimes, you might have to do what they want or else they might not want to be friend anymore. You could be the boss or leader of a group of your friends, but you always have to take care of your friends, make the games fun, and don’t make your friends feel mistreated. What I value the most is the trust. If you are a friend of somebody and you trick them, it would make them trust you lesser than the beginning. And they might say something bad about you, since you tricked them, and others will start to have a feeling that you might not be able to be trusted.

  24. The three most important parts of friendship? Well I think Trust is one of them, here are my reasons why.

    If you don’t have trust then you can’t trust them with secrets or to do something properly for you, also if you don’t have trust it can cause conflict and then you will lose you’r friendships. Another important part of friendship is inside jokes, inside jokes are jokes that you make with each other because they’re funny but only to you these keep friendships funny, the 3rd most important part of friendship is encouragement because friends encourage you to do anything you want to do and also they make you feel nice and welcomed and appreciated, they also help you if something you can’t do alone they will always be the first to volunteer if it can help you in anyway. also they will always make sure you’re ok and wont stop till you are better, also they will stand up for you when someone or something bad is happening to you.

    Also don’t judge you if you do weird things so you can be yourself around them and you can feel comfortable with them. everyone need friends because it helps them be happier and also it makes you enjoy life more. Thats why friends are great!

  25. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The most the important elements of being a friend is that you get to have fun, you get cared for and you can share your secrets. You can tell your friends your secrets and they can tell you theirs, we know trust each other and never tell anyone.
    Another important thing is that you have to care for each other. If your friend is hurt or sad, you have to try cheer them up, if their hurt then take them to the nurse or if you are at your house with your friend you can get them a bandaid. You have to treat them the way you want to be treated. If you treat them like you just don’t care then they will probably do that to you too.
    You also have to be nice and have fun. It’s fine if you mess with them a bit like joking, but sometimes your friend might think that you actually mean it so they get hurt emotionally.
    The most valuable thing about having a friend is that you get to have a lot of fun, you can have sleepovers, your can come over to your house or you can come over to theirs and you do a lot more fun activities together

  26. What are the most important elements of being a friend and why, and what do you value most about your friendships?

    The most important thing of being a friend is to help other out when they need your help, being being kind to them and need to listen to their ideas. We need to help them and be caring because when your friend need help but you don’t help them they might not want to be your friend anymore.

    You need friends because if you have a problem you can get help from your friends. Also if you don’t have any friends you will be lonely and won’t have anyone to play with at recess and you won’t have any fun.
