One of my really good friend is in much trouble now in school becoz of her own carelessness-bunking classes, not studying well, not doing her assignments on time, telling lies back home....coz she spends all her precious time after an internet friend, she met a month ago...now this is really a stupid thing to do....when i tell her to keep herself on track n be focused on study...she gets all angry...n says she doesnt care....i am really worried now....can anyone tell me wot shud i do about her??

If she isn't asking your opinion, keep it to yourself. There isn't anything you can do. She is her own person and must make her own mistakes. Her life is her journey. Perhaps she has to go through rough stuff to learn something that will help her later in life.

Hi! It is sad but true that sometimes, a person needs to taste failure or pain before she or he can achieve something in life or realize on her or his mistakes. As a friend, you have done a good job in advising her, but do not force her to listen to you. Perhaps you can try to get to know this 'internet friend'. Right now she is probably willing to listen to him above all else. Just do not give up on being there for her. All the best to you and her.

u shud talk to her and tell her to get her life back on track and not waste time for an unknown stranger infact u shud tell her abt the dangers of gettin too close to unknown ppl on the net for all u may know the other dude may have a sinister plan besides ask her y is she doin this take her out have a good time hang out together and convice her to concentrate on school

well, i think if you are really concern about her, (you friend) then you should confide this things to her parents so that her parents will gonna know what is her hidden agenda..it doesn't matter if she'll get angry unto you what is important is you did your part..you have tell the information to her parents...that's the good thing to do for a friend who is very much hard headed

The truth of the matter is it sounds like she is going to have to learn the hard way what happens when you dont take care of things in life. I really dont think that there is much you can do. You have already tried talking to her by the sounds of it and she didnt want to listen. If you really feel you need to do something about the only other thing you can do is tell her parents. Good luck!

hiniptl, Seriously, you cannot just pluck someone elses' case, change some variables and get the answer you seek - everyone has different circumstances, even though manifestation can be similar. Eventually, even if you have the best solution, it will still be naught if she does not realize her errant ways and evolve within herself to change. What she needs to bring herself to take that first step will be what all of you will have to work on. Take care and have a nice day.
