“It is better to be alone than in bad company.”George Washington
Kids are in the midst of making so many ethical choices about the types of people they should be hanging out with. There is peer pressure to spend time with friends who may make questionable life choices but whose approval is important for a child’s self-esteem. Friendship advice from parents, coaches and other authority figures often go unheard because they conflict with what kids believe inside. Decisions on which company to keep are never easy but they are integral to the healthy moral development of human beings.
President George Washington claims that you shouldn’t ever surround yourself with people of bad character. It’s better to be alone.
You shouldn’t be afraid of being around people with bad characters. Be confident with who you are and be a role model for others.
Should we avoid bad people?
