Cree and Madisyn’s Guide to Being a Good Friend!
The Game Shakers stars share their 10 tips for creating an unbreakable bond with your bestie!
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.
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.
