Get to know your BFF’S other buds!

If you two don’t have all the same friends, try get­ting to know some of her other pals. “Hav­ing dif­fer­ent groups of friends brings out the more fun things in life,” Madisyn shares. Plus, if she likes them, you prob­a­bly will too!

Don’t break your friend’s trust!

Friends should know they can count on you to keep your word. “If you tell them you’re go­ing to keep a se­cret or a prom­ise, you’ve got to carry that out,” Cree says. “Be­ing loyal and trust­wor­thy makes a strong foundation for a good friend­ship!”

Show your friend some sup­port!

It’s im­por­tant to be there for a friend when she needs you. “I al­ways give my friends pep talks if they’re feel­ing down about them­selves,” Madisyn ex­plains. “I tell them, ‘I’m al­ways here for you if you ever need any­thing.’” A big bear hug al­ways helps, too!

Boost her con­fi­dence!

If any­thing or any­one makes your bud doubt her­self, Mad­die sug­gests say­ing: “Don’t lis­ten to them be­cause you’re awe­some!” It’ll lift her spir­its to know that you be­lieve in her 100%.

Stay in touch!

Whether your bud lives across the coun­try or across town, let her know you’re think­ing of her — es­pe­cially dur­ing times when you don’t see her ev­ery day. “I take the time to text, call or Face­time friends when I don’t see them,” Cree opens up.

Talk out a prob­lem!

Don’t let dis­agree­ments ruin a friend­ship. “Af­ter a fight, really try to see where they’re com­ing from, and then dis­cuss it once you’ve calmed down and thought about it,” Cree ad­vises.

Be a good lis­tener!

When you’re with pals, you should feel like you could chat for hours! But it’s im­por­tant to give them a chance to speak, too. “When­ever my friends are go­ing through a hard time, they’re com­fort­able talk­ing to me be­cause I’m a lis­tener,” Cree dishes. It’s a great friend­ship-build­ing skill!

Be her big­gest fan!

If you some­times get jeal­ous of your bestie’s tal­ents, lis­ten to Cree’s ad­vice: “I try to never let friend­ships get to the point where we’re com­pet­ing with one another,” she tells us. “We root for each other to do well.”

Don’t ask a friend to change!

Af­ter all, her unique quirks are prob­a­bly one of the things you like most about her! “Real friends love you for who you are,” Madisyn says. “They don’t want you to change to fit in.” So never make a friend feel out of place for hav­ing dif­fer­ent opin­ions or in­ter­ests.

Have fun!

This one’s a must! “You have to have fun to­gether,” smiles Cree. “That’s what friends are for!”

“Mad­die’s like my sis­ter,” Cree re­veals. “But we all have fun to­gether as a cast, too!” We had a silly vibe on set. Mad­die’s hair moustache made ev­ery­one laugh! Cree picked this cool blue nail pol­ish right be­fore we started snap­ping pho­tos.
