Good Friendships Help Reduce Stress

          What makes a good friend?


  Friendships change quickly for many reasons.  People move way, change schools, or simply change their ways.  Keeping old friendships is important and making new friends is just as important.  Use this self-assessment to rate how you are doing as a friend.
