People all need friends because nobody wants to be lonely and a friend can help you in good and bad times.You’ve made friends since childhood,but you still don’t know who your true friends are.Here are some signs to tell you if your friend is a true friend:
Honesty is important to keep a relationship alive.A true friend always tells you the truth.It may be hard sometimes but lying can destroy a friendship.It is important that your friend speaks honestly and never makes up stories.
There are always periods in your life when you have problems or difficulties.A true friend will always have time to listen to your problems and give advice.It may not be able to offer a solution to your problems but the fact that your friend made time to listen is a sign he/she cares for you.Your friend is not a true friend if he/she can never make time for you when you are in trouble.You also need to be reasonable and accept that your friend also has other things to do so he/she can’t always listen immediately to your problems.
A true friend will always respect your opinion no matter whether he/she agrees or not.Your true friend may disagree but never insists that he/she is correct.
It is possible that some problems will arise between you and your friend.A true friend will always be forgiving and understanding even if it isn’t his /her fault.We are all different people and we all make mistakes.A true friend is always forgiving and understanding because he/she doesn’t want to take the risk of losing his/her best friend.

解析推理判断题。根据第一段最后的“Here are some signs to tell you if your friend is a true friend”可知,作者的写作意图是帮助我们辨别自己的朋友是否是真正的朋友。
When you choose a friend,you should be very careful.A good friend can help you study.You can have fun together and make each other happy.Sometimes you will meet fair weather friends.They will be with you as long as you have money or luck,but when you are down,they will run away.How do I know when I have found a good friend?I look for certain qualities of character,especially understanding,honesty and reliability (可靠).
Above all else,I look for understanding in a friend.A good friend tries to understand how another person is feeling.He is not quick to judge.Instead,he tries to learn from others.He puts himself in the other person’s place,and he tries to think of ways to be helpful.He is also a good listener.
At the same time,however,a good friend is honest.He does not look for faults in others.He notices their good points.In short,good friends will be honest to each other and accept each other.
Another quality of a friend is reliability.I can always depend on a good friend.If he tells me he will meet me somewhere at a certain time,I can be sure that he will be there.If I need a favour,he will do his best to help me.If I am in trouble,he will not run away from me.
There is a fourth quality that makes a friend special.A special friend is someone with whom we can have fun.We should enjoy our lives,and we would enjoy our friendship.That is why I especially like friends who are fun to be with.A good friend likes the same things I like.We share experience and learn from each other.A good friend has a good sense of humour,too.He likes to laugh with me.That is how we share in the joy of being friends.And I know that he is looking for the same quality in me.
When I meet someone who is reliable,honest,and understanding,I know I’ve found a friend!

You cannot choose your child’s friends for him,but you can help him learn to choose friends wisely. 1 Here are a few ways to help your child make friends.
●Build your child’s self-confidence.
When he succeeds or has made a great choice,tell him you’re proud of him. 2 Your middle school student is going through many changes and may feel like he isn’t “good enough”.Building his self-confidence will help him feel more confident and will make it easier for him to form healthy friendships.
Give him your full attention when he talks,and really listen to what he has to say.
●Discuss the qualities in a friend with your child.
Discuss with your child the qualities that matter most,such as being reliable and kind,and making good choices when it comes to avoiding alcohol and tobacco.
●Get to know your child’s friends.
4 It’s more important to talk with them and find out what they like to do.Allow your child to invite his friends over and get to know them better.
