get the Edge on friendship
Friends are an important part of every teens’ life. The Edge encourages students toward healthy friendships, with the idea that if “you show me your friends, I’ll show you your future.”
The web has become such a popular way to find answers to some of our deepest questions. It is anonymous, available, easy to use and offers a plethora of information on any subject you could imagine. Be aware of the source of the information you find. Who is behind the website you are looking for answers on? Do they really care about you, your life, your future?
Beyond that, don't substitute real, personal communication with people for the internet. Surround yourself with quality friends and mentors that have character.
There should be at least one person that you can confide in and talk to about issues you struggle with. It may be your mom or dad, a grandparent or aunt, a teacher, coach or counselor at school, or another trusted adult that cares about you. These people can help you get the Edge on life.
