A lot of things can happen that affect your confidence. We all thought of scenarios on how to encourage a friend to stay positive.
Muscle Man's Scenario
When someone laughs at you, it can make you feel bad. Try ignoring these people. Once they see that you are still smiling, they will leave you alone.
The Running Man's Scenario
If you see one of your friends being teased, give them a compliment to make them feel good about themselves. Tell them that the people who tease them are drinking 'hater-aid'.
Young Wonder's Scenario
Maybe one of your friends didn't pass a grade. You could offer to help them study and encourage them to go to summer school so they can continue on to the next grade when school starts.
Saphhire Diamonds' Scenario
Someone might feel like they are too short. I would tell them that being short is ok because everyone develops at their own pace. There are other people who are going through the same thing, so you are not alone.
Maybe one of your friends doesn't know how to do their hair and gets teased about it. I would offer to help them with their hair, saying that we could be twins.
