I live in Costa Rica and go to a very good school. My class is the smallest in the school and that limits my to very few friends. I am told that I am outgoing, but I consider myself quite shy. Most of the people above 8th grade, treat my whole class pretty badly, as if we were some kind of losers. I try not to mind, but deep down, it really does upset me. As well, my best friend moved to Brazil, and my favorite cousin now goes to FLAIR. I rarely see them, and they are my support system. I feel very selfish thinking that I deserve friends that can be there for me. I cannot do anything about my cousin and best friend. Changing schools is absolutely out of the question, my mother can’t afford it. My parents are divorced, so my father is quite absent. He is always too busy with work and his girlfriend, plus he lives on the other side of town. Should I tell him how I feel? What should I do about school and friends?
P.S. I have been reading your book. It’s just hard to “dump” my friends. People at school aren’t very nice, specially sophomores and seniors…
Sean I need help on what to do about this girl at school who used to be my best friend and then I got a boy friend and then found out she liked him. I didnt know she did and he broke up with me and then the next day I found out that she was his girlfriend and all because of him she doesnt want to be my friend and I still want to be her friend I just need to wether I should keep trying or if I should just give up. And your book is awsome we use it for peer midiation at my school.
Hi Sean, I just got your book for Christmas and I really like it. I need some help though. My parents have been addicting to smoking cigarettes for a long time now…my dad since he was 15 and I don’t know how long my dad has. It’s really hard for me though, because I know how much bad they do to them and that me and my brother - who has asthma, by the way, so they really harm him. I want to make them quit or something…but I don’t know how! It’s also really frustrating because shouldn’t my parents be the ones that tell me not to smoke, but right now I’M the one telling THEM? HELP?!

Hi Sean. Well. I LOVE our book. But the one part I, nor my friends can relate to is your school section. We are all homeschooled. But, I think the rest of your book is really good!!!!!!
Hi Sean. My name is Lola. I am 13. I live in America. Lately, after reading the book ‘the 6 most important decisions you’ll ever make’, I felt like i needed to work on my self confidence. I constantly am worrying about my wieght(though im constantly reminded that im not fat). I think i’ve been doing pretty well, and here is why.
One morning, I wanted some caffine, but i dont like coffee that much. So I got Coke instead. We keep our pop in our kitchen pantry. the lowest shelf in the pantry is about 3 feet high. we keep the pop on the floor. As i bent over to pick up the pop, i noticed it was in the very back corner. So I ducked under the shelf. Grabbing the pop, I attempted to stand up rather quickly. But the shelf apparently, had other plans. I smacked the right side of my head on the shelf, and staggering sideways, I hit the doorknob with the left side of my head. My mom was standing right there. And she started cracking up!!!!! My head was pounding, but in spite of this, I also started laughing. We were both laughing for about two minutes. Untill my brother yelled from the living room(he was watching tv) to ’shut up!!!!!’. did we finally stop. If i hadn’t read your book, I probably would have turned bright red from embarrassment. And fair skin turns red REALLY fast. Lol. all in all, it did give me a splitting headache for about an hour, but I just laugh about it.
