A high school kid goes to a party. Meanwhile, conflict is likely avoiding him. Finally, the kid must confront the conflict that he fought so hard to avoid.
Hey, we're having a party tomorrow night at my house. You want to come?
Sure, let me check with my parents
So, who's birthday are you celebrating at this party?
Well then, as long as there is no alcohol there and you're safe.
This party is awesome!
It was Wednesday, and Cindy invited Joe to a party that night. He could tell that it wouldn't be a typical birthday party, and knew his parent's wouldn't like the idea. But he said yes to avoid conflict.
Not sure what to do...
Hey man, chill out. What's going on? You can talk to us about it.
That guy's a punk.
That night, Joe had to convince his parents to let him go to the party. He chose to lie so his parents would not be upset.
I think I can finally do the right thing and confront the situation.
Mom: Come home now. There's an emergency
Please don't go! I need your help!
Once Joe got to the party, he realized that it was really fun!
You can come home with me. I will calmy tell my parents about what happened and I will listen to what they have to say. But it is also important to enter into conflicts that help people. I can't run from conflict anymore.
