Dear Guggi,

We just discovered that many students read their teachers private messages when they are assigned to be the messenger. What should we do?

From,

Concerned Third Graders

 

Dear Concerned Third Graders,

If you are concerned then tell the students that are reading the messages that they shouldn’t read them and if they don’t listen then tell the teacher.

Dear Guggi,

I have a problem. Kids in my class have been leaving me out in centers.

From,

Dear Sad and Lonely 1st Grader,

If you want to play in the centers then just ask, in a nice voice, if you can play with them.

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

My friend and I always get into a fight. How do I stop that from happening?

From,

Dear Unhappy Fighter,

If you don’t want to get into get into fights then try to avoid talking about anything that you think would start a fight. Or stay nice to her.

Dear Guggi,

I never get to sit with my friends anymore. I told my mom.

From,

Dear Initials 1,

Just tell your friends that you want to sit next them. Remember you can’t force them to sit with you.

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

My friend and I keep on getting in fights and now she is not talking to me.

From,

Initials 2

 

Dear Initials 2,

Why don’t you try to avoid getting into fights and try talking to your friend? And remember to say you’re sorry to her if you are wrong.

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

I’m having problems with one of my friends. She is hogging my other friend. What should I do?

From,

Sad Kid

 

Dear Sad Kid,

If you want to play with your friends then ask if you can play with them. Try to be friends with them and if it doesn’t work, why don’t you take turns playing with them?

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

I think that my friends are not treating me fairly. What should I do?

From,

Help!

 

Dear Help!,

If you think that, you should tell them that you think they are treating you unfairly.

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

I’m part of a group and somebody wants to join but not all the people in the group want her to join. I do. What should I do?

From,

I’m In Trouble

 

Dear I’m In Trouble,

Even if some people in the group don’t want her in your group, you should let her in because if you have a group everybody that wants to be included should be able to be included. And if you don’t let her in, she will feel like she is being treated unfairly by you. You should let everyone in the group.

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

My sister is always mean to me. Please help!

From,

Rocky Girl

 

Dear Rocky Girl,

Why don’t you try talking to your sister and tell her how you feel? If that doesn’t work, try talking to your parents about it.

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

I have some problems with a kid in my class. When I brought my telescope to school he said, “That’s not a good telescope!” He is a smarty pants.

From,

Initials 3

 

Dear Initials 3,

Why don’t you ask him why he says those things? Also tell him if he doesn’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all!

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

At recess I have no one to play with. Don’t tell me I should ask somebody. Bye.

From,

Feeling Sad

 

Dear Feeling Sad,

If you don’t ask any kids, you will also have nobody to play with, so why don’t you try asking some kids that look like they are fun to play with?

From,

Guggi

 

Dear Guggi,

Do you have a friend who wants something back? Mine does. She gave me a monkey that said Best and hers said Friends. What should I do or say if she gives it to someone else?

From,

Initials 4

 

Dear Initials 4,

Talk to your friend about why you each had such a special thing. You didn’t say that she asked for yours back, only that you are worried that she might. Maybe she won’t ask...

From,

Guggi
