It is often true in life that we are judged by the company we keep. Finding a group of friends is especially important. A diverse selection of young people describe their own involvement with bad friends, and identify the characteristics that they now seek in their friends. An adolescent psychologist advises teens who are enmeshed in negative relationships to either change the dynamics of the friendship or move on to make connections with other, more positive peers. Provides important tips on how to make the best of their friendships and themselves.
