Do you have friends who are not very good with money? What do they do? Should you try to help them?

Normally, my friends forget their money or lose it so sometimes I invite them to buy anything below 40 cents in the candy store. I don't want to give very much because I need it more than they do. I love this web page, it's wonderful!

I also have a friend who lends from me lots of money but I always handed over to her because i know she needs it and I understand that she is not rich. So i am glad to help someone who needs my help.

Once my friend was in a bad situation and she need much money, I tried to hand it over her. Afterward, she still didn't afford to pay me back. That's fine because, above all, we are good friends ^^

Mmm yeah, I have one friend who isn't very good with money. IDK. The only thing I know about her is that she isn't excellent student, she's very good. She hasn't mother. She left out her. She has father and brother. I think. Yeah, we are hanging out with her, we are inviting her to come with us, we go out together, we invite her on birthdays.... And I agree with Natalija. I think the same think as she. I don't give her money, becase I don't wanna she to get me wrong. Only when is her birthday, and like a birthday present sometimes I give it to her clothes, money.... something like that. But I really respect her. She's nice person. She hasn't got lot friends. She knows that we are always here for here. We are not best friend, burt we are society and we always, always hang put together. :)

It is so difficult with the good relationships between rich and poor teenagers in the modern world.... There are unnecessary divisions... We are all people! No matter what we wear, or how modern are our phones !The most precious thing we have, is our soul.

You made a right decision, I think. Friends are not the tools which we can use to finish our purposes. In fact, I always find it difficult to make friends. I can keep a normal relationship with them but I just can't go any further. And the truth is I have no close friends. One of my friends always says that she is my best friend. However, I've been wondering about that all the time. What has she done for me? Laughed at me when I got bad grades? Made fun of me whenever she liked to do? Blamed me for something that I hadn't done? Asked me for help and then said I hadn't done anything for her? She even tells everyone that I seem to be nice but actually evil inside. I sat on the floor and cried a lot. But I can't get away from her because my family owes hers many things. And now, I'm still looking for a true friend.

Hi June,
The friend you mentioned isn't behaving like a good friend. She may be saying bad things about you just to make herself feel better without thinking about your feelings. Good luck dealing with this situation and try to ignore what she's saying if it makes you unhappy. 
Don't worry, you'll meet many people and make other friends throughout your life. Best wishes,
Elana (LearnEnglish Teens Team)
