Wanting to Help a Classmate

Wanting to Help a Classmate
There is a girl at school who tried out for a part in a program but didn't get the part. Now she has to be someone else that she doesn't want to be. She is really down. What can I do?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It's very nice of you to care about this girl's feelings. Let her know that you are always willing to listen if she wants to talk about this, and encourage her to do as well as she can with the part she was given. But there isn't much else you need to do. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated.

Best wishes,
