Hey, Lifebabblers.

0:00:080:00:09

Today, we're talking gangs -

0:00:090:00:11

what it means to be in a gang

0:00:110:00:12

and whether it's a positive or negative part of your life.

0:00:120:00:16

It's fun to belong to a group,

0:00:170:00:19

do the same sort of things, maybe dress the same way,

0:00:190:00:22

have cool rules to follow or a special high five.

0:00:220:00:25

So your gang is great, it helps form your identity,

0:00:250:00:27

you have great mates - brilliant!

0:00:270:00:29

But not all gangs are positive.

0:00:290:00:31

Gangs that make other people feel afraid,

0:00:310:00:33

do wrong things or put other people at risk are negative gangs.

0:00:330:00:37

PHONE RINGS

0:00:370:00:38

I like to hang out with a group of friends, kind of like a gang.

0:00:380:00:43

We get along and we share and we just have fun,

0:00:430:00:46

but gangs aren't always good, because we can be a bit exclusive,

0:00:460:00:51

not letting everyone join in.

0:00:510:00:54

My group of friends support each other through everything,

0:00:540:00:57

cheer each other up when we're sad and always make each other laugh.

0:00:570:01:00

That is a positive gang.

0:01:000:01:02

I have a group of friends that I've known since high school that

0:01:020:01:04

I hang out with. We have a lot of fun together.

0:01:040:01:06

Some gangs are groups of people involved in crime.

0:01:060:01:09

That's not really good for anyone around them really.

0:01:090:01:11

Gangs that hurt and intimidate others, I don't like them,

0:01:110:01:15

but I see why some people might join them.

0:01:150:01:17

They might feel isolated or have problems going on at home

0:01:170:01:19

making them want to live that lifestyle.

0:01:190:01:22

It's natural to be part of a group,

0:01:220:01:24

to hang out together, feel like part of a family,

0:01:240:01:27

but it's important to recognise the boundaries.

0:01:270:01:31

Gangs can be harmful.

0:01:310:01:32

A gang that you have to join and can't leave,

0:01:320:01:36

that requires you to behave in a certain way,

0:01:360:01:39

to do things you don't want to do and you know are wrong,

0:01:390:01:44

this gang is not safe and could be harmful to you and others.

0:01:440:01:48

If you're afraid of being in a gang or afraid of others,

0:01:480:01:52

speak to someone you trust.

0:01:520:01:54

PHONE RINGS

0:01:540:01:55

Gangs make us feel really nervous and worried.

0:01:550:01:58

There is a local gang that hang round the park that I go

0:01:580:02:02

past to go to school and I try and avoid going past there.

0:02:020:02:06

To bake a positive gang of friends, you need...

0:02:090:02:11

I like sharing.

0:02:160:02:18

There are ingredients that'll make your bake go all wrong, so avoid...

0:02:180:02:24

Gently mix, put into shapes and bake,

0:02:300:02:33

and here's some I made earlier.

0:02:330:02:36

Delicious! A baked gang of good friends.

0:02:360:02:39

Trust your instincts.

0:02:410:02:42

How does a group really make you feel?

0:02:420:02:44

We all have those internal alarm bells

0:02:440:02:46

that let us know when something's not quite right

0:02:460:02:48

and when you feel uncomfortable. Alarm bell - listen to it.

0:02:480:02:52

Maybe something just makes you feel awkward - warning sign.

0:02:520:02:57

If you don't feel safe - red card.

0:02:570:02:59

A group should accept you and make you feel happy and safe.

0:02:590:03:02

If it doesn't feel right - warning sign, red card.

0:03:020:03:06

Then you know it's not the right gang or group to be in.

0:03:060:03:08

-# Friends respect one another

0:03:100:03:11

# Yours should respect you

0:03:110:03:13

# But what happens when they bully you?

0:03:130:03:15

# You have to pick

0:03:150:03:16

# Do I do what's right or stay friends?

0:03:160:03:19

# I need to make that decision

0:03:190:03:21

# But real friends wouldn't put you in that crazy position

0:03:210:03:24

# So show strength You rule and your friends

0:03:240:03:27

# You choose So be a friend

0:03:270:03:28

# The type of person that is always true

0:03:280:03:31

# You might have a huge group or just select a few

0:03:310:03:34

# It don't matter

0:03:340:03:35

# All that matters is they're friends with you. #

0:03:350:03:37

That's all for this Lifebabble.

0:03:410:03:43
