Storyboard Text

  • Thanks for inviting me, but I have a big Biology lab due tomorrow and I'm not finished...
  • I can't wait to go to that party, Sarah! I'm so excited!
  • Yeah, me too. Hey Mandy, do you want to come to my party tonight?
  • But I love Biology...
  • Oh, that's ok! I'm sure your teacher will let it slide. Also, you can't sit with me at lunch anymore if you don't come.
  • After school, 4pm Mandy's phone
  • See you in 2hrs!
  • Sarah
  • Oh no, what do I do?
  • How DNA growth is affected by amount of ingestion of lipids
  • I'm not going to have time to finish this if I go to the party...
  • Beep beep
  • I have to tell her the truth, friendly but also firmly. School comes before this.
  • It is ok if she does not accept me as a friend because a real friend would not make me put her first.
  • Hey Mandy, the party is starting! Aren't you coming?
  • Ok
  • I'm sorry Sarah, I really have to finish my lab report. It is very important to me. I hope you understand.
  • See you in 2hrs!
  • Sarah
  • Refusal Skills used: 1. Be friendly, yet firm. Mandy told Sarah clearly that she could not come, but was also kind about it. She did not tell Sarah that she is a horrible friend for making her choose between school and friends. 2. Be honest. Mandy told Sarah exactly why she could not come to her party. 3. Appeal to the possible consequences. Mandy decided before she texted Sarah that it did not matter if Sarah chose to ignore or neglect her.
