Reasons for Relationships
What Would You Do?
Meet Johnny. Johnny has had a rough year. He switched to a new school because his parents got a divorce and he moved into a new house with his mother and sister. He always fights with his sister and only has a few friends at school. He doesn't talk to his dad very much because he works a lot and calls Johnny names like "wimp" and "stupid." All of this has caused a drop in Johnny's confidence. He really wishes something would just go right for him.
A girl at school, Emma, has recently started giving Johnny attention. They sit together at lunch, and she just asked him for his phone number. She even said something about them going to McDonald's on Saturday.
How do you think this attention from Emma makes Johnny feel? Do you think he would feel excited? Why or why not?
