I just watched the movie Mean Girls the other night. I know to some degree things were exaggerated but, oh my... it was a bit concerning. There were parts that I recognized in some of the girls I went to high school with actually even from an elementary and jr high level.
Mean girl to new girl- you are so pretty
new girl- thank you
mean-...so you agree?
mean--that your pretty, you think your pretty?
people like that drive me crazy!!!!! My goal is not so much to protect my daughter from girls like these because she will come across them in every area of life. My real goal is to direct her in a path so that she NEVER becomes one of these girls. I am really lucky so far because she is a great girl. She is only 10, but I think sometimes it can just take that one new friend in her life that could shake things up. I know that having two older brothers has really helped in the area of her standing up for herself, she's only 10 but it has allowed her to not be intimidated by boys her own age but can she be that way with the girls. I was such a shy, fragile & naive 10 year old that it impresses me that she already has that going for her.
MAJOR HINT # 444
okay not really four hundred and forty four but when traveling or even just at home here is a soup hint I overheard in the DR's office from a couple of college girls. It's called:
COFFEE POT RAMEN
You can put the ramen noodles (you know the big square thing) I think you can get them for a quarter
and put them in the coffee pot ,along with the season packet
put the water in the coffee maker as if you were making a pot of coffee
hit start and then VOILA you have coffee pot ramen.
this is great because it is way cheap and when your at a hotel or a kid in college
