Can you correct your friend from her/his wrong doing?

I got a friend who usually getting things that not belong to her. I don't think we are tolerating what she is doing. But maybe because we think that she is in the right age to know what is right or wrong.

We do did mistaken, and also friends too because we are human... But it will be very big mistaken for us if we know our friend have done some mistaken and we just let that happen over and over while you know that isn't good for your friendship. If my friend have done something that i believe that was wrong for him/her, then i just try to tell them that what they did i believe is wrong. I spoke to them gently, softly, and friendly... If they are our true friend, they will hear and understand what we where trying to tell them. And if the opposites... Just let it be... But we already give our best shot.

I frequently correct my friend from doing somethings wrong. But sometimes they don't bother me. So I just ignore him/her.

Honestly whenever my friend is in need of advice or is in trouble, my role is only as listener i don't think its a wise decision to give advice or tell him what he/she must do. As a listener, I'm just there to let him/her express the thoughts he/she have and let him/her find out the answer or what he/she must be done. I don't give advice because i believe we are unique and not the same so what is effective to me, might not be effective to my friends vice versa.

u can't correct her but to remind her always that it was wrong and maybe turn into a bad habbit, always tell her good advice and warnings like an angel on her side

I would not tolerate someone who takes something that does not belong to them. This is simply atrocious. However, being your friend it would not be easy to do. What I would do is to stay away from her.

Uhm. Of course you can correct your friend by telling her. I mean, looks like she's gone too far because you say that she usually gets things that don't belong to her. Of course you can tell her off. I mean, what do you think you're supposed to do as her friend, right? Friends are a part of shaping an individual. So if you contribute to the good side, you're actually helping her become better.

If by "getting things that not belong to her" you mean stealing, you should definitely correct this person. It's better to hear it from friends who care about you, rather than the authorities. Then again, maybe I'm reading your question wrongly. A life of crime can be quite punishable - can your friend take the consequences?

Hi Reyah. Let your friend do whatever she thinks correct. There is one saying we could not correct anyone or this world we can change ourselves. Friend also an independent person like you so she have the fullest right to choose her way. The best way to get along with friend is not interfere any of their matters. Moreover none of any human beigns ready accept their mistake. Please behave as a matured person.

you cannot correct but you can remind her and tell her that what she is doing is bad.. in that way, you can show that you dont compromise her wrong doings. being a friend doesnt only mean that you have to be good and say just good things to your friend just to make her feel good. if you are looking out for her own welfare then you've got to help her correct and stop her wrong doing :-)

Yeah definitely i would try and correct my friend if i feel that he/she is doing something wrong. Whatever age it be. Because, something's which get through in your habit might never change. So i guess it would be right to correct it right away. Happy mylotting friend..
