A Middle School Top 10

Monday night at PI-678 (our middle school program), I had the students get together in small groups and come up with their Top 10 Characteristics of a Good Friend. After having them share their thoughts I gave a talk on friendships.

The Big Idea was: "I have to be the kind of friend I want."

When I got home I compiled their lists. Here are the Top 10 overall qualities they look for in a friend (in order):

  1. Kind
  2. Respectful
  3. Honest/Truthful
  4. Caring
  5. Trustworthy
  6. Loyal
  7. Encouraging
  8. Common Interests
  9. Helpful
  10. Good Listener
