Students' Essays

The following is a student's response to the question, "Which is worse, arguing with someone orfiving someonethesilent treatment?"

I think giving someone the silent treatment is worse.  It's because doing so makes them sad.  When I was given the silent treatment by my brother, I felt sad.  Also, I think arguing with womeone is important,because we can't communicate without tellingour minds.  I think if we are angry at someone, we should tell them what we feel frankly.
