Last night my girls went to the high school basketball game. I didn't go, but provided the taxi service to and from.
When I picked them up, the first thing out of the eldest's mouth was, "I hate girls. They're so mean."
Without going into details, let me just say that an upper classman made a remark to her friends about something eldest had said. And, she said it loud enough that my girl and her friend heard her.
It's difficult to know what to say at times like this.
I told my daughter something that a very wise woman once said.
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt
