  • We communicate with people every day. Good communication helps people understand each other and helps build good relationships.
  • When you communicate, you send or receive messages. Both the sender of the message and the receiver should have good communication skills.
  • On one end of communication, there is a speaker or writer. On the other end, there is a listener or reader. An example of body language is shrugging your shoulders at a question you can’t answer. People are often unaware of their body language. Sometimes, without knowing it, people send mixed messages. You send a mixed message when your words don’t match what your body is saying.
  • Sign language allows people with hearing loss to communicate face-to-face.
  • Instant messaging (IM) is a great example of how technology improves communication in our lives. So is e-mail. When using these technologies, it is important to understand the risks and to play it safe.
  • The advantages to different kinds of communication include being able to communicate your feelings, exchange ideas and information, and get a timely response. Sometimes it is easier to express feelings or difficult emotions in writing than face-to-face or on the phone. In written messages, your reader can’t see your facial expression or hear the tone of your voice. All forms of communication allow you to communicate successfully.
  • This slide summarizes effective verbal and nonverbal communication skills for both sending and receiving messages.
  • To communicate effectively, you must learn to use an assertive style. Being an assertive communicator means that you make your wants and needs known, but in a positive, active manner.
  • Reasons people become friends include: Location Shared interests Personality traits
  • Get to know yourself : Make a list of your own interests. Break the ice : Start a conversation with a classmate you think you’d like to know better. Join a club, sports team, or community group that interests you : You’ll meet people with similar interests. Offer a helping hand : Help a classmate or neighbor with homework or other projects.
  • It is important to choose friends who have positive values and attitudes. Good friends often have the same views of what is right and wrong. They may share common character traits such as trustworthiness and caring. Being friends does not always mean you will agree with each other. Accepting views and opinions that are different from your own is a sign of respect. It is also a sign of maturity, a sign that you’re growing up.
  • Talking together about problems or concerns is a form of support. Supporting each other will help you and your friend make more healthful decisions. This includes saying no to negative peer pressure.
  • You see classmates wearing a certain type of clothing. Without a word from anyone else, you go out and buy the same item. This is an example of peer pressure. Other times, peer pressure may be more direct. A peer may tell you what you should do to blend in or be accepted.
  • Peer pressure can be either positive or negative. You may be encouraged to study for a test by studying together with your friends or other peers.
  • Peer pressure can be either positive or negative. You may be encouraged to study for a test by studying together with your friends or other peers.
  • Other examples of negative peer pressure include: Urging a peer to use tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs Talking a peer into being unkind to someone who is different Persuading a peer to do something illegal such as shoplifting Encouraging a peer to be disrespectful to parents or other adults Urging a peer to fight or get involved in gangs
  • Say no in a firm voice Sometimes, saying no is enough. Friends who respect you will take now for an answer. Show self-confidence without being insulting to others. Tell why not Explain your reasons for saying no. Let your peers know that you value your health and safety. Offer other ideas Change the subject by coming up with something else to do instead. Promptly leave If people continue to put pressure on you, walk away. Remember that you can always seek the help of a trusted adult.
  • High risk behaviors include: Tobacco use Alcohol use Illegal drugs Sexual activity
  • When you choose abstinence, you protect the three sides of your health triangle.
  • Disliking someone because of their skin color or culture is an example of prejudice. Prejudice can cause both emotional and social health risks within a community.
  • Don’t assume anything about a person until you get to know him or her.
  • When you disagree with someone, state your case clearly. Use “I” statements that do not accuse or blame. Accepting people who are different from you can help you build and maintain positive interpersonal relationships.
  • Walking away from a conflict does not make you a coward or chicken. It makes you wiser and more mature than the other person. If a conflict is brewing between two other people, don’t get in the middle or take sides. Go get help from an adult right away.
  • Take a time-out Wait at least 30 minutes before you talk over the situation. This will give you both a chance to calm down and think more clearly. Allow each person to tell his or her side Each person should have the chance to explain his or her feelings without interruption. Let each person ask questions Stay calm and respectful. Don’t bring other problems up at this time. Keep brainstorming Try to see the situation from the other person’s point of view.
  • When all else fails, get help from a school counselor, parent, or other adult.
  • Violence can lead to injury and even death.
  • Gang membership is not an answer to life’s problems. Teens in gangs have a higher school drop-out rate than nonmembers. Teens in gangs are arrested more often, too. Because gangs often use weapons, these teens have a higher risk of getting seriously injured or of dying.
