A good friend in school keeps using me to help him out with his homework. What do I do?

Question: Hi, so I have a good friend in school and sometimes, I feel he is just using me to help him out with his homework and notes. What do I do? Teentalker , 16-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns. It's unfortunate that you have to go through this and it usually tends to happen even more so because you're good at studies. Sad, but true. It's good to be helpful and kind, but sometimes, you also have to learn to say 'no'. After all, saying 'no' is not always a bad thing. Many successful personalities also believe in that philosophy.

Hope this helps, if you ha.....
