"The girls in my dd school act horribly and all authority around them seem to either encourage, or ignore their behaviour. What do you think about 8-10 year olds wearing revealing clothes, judging others wardrobes to the point of tears and segmentation, harassing boys by phone, email and MSN to the number of 10 or so times a day, and comparing boys physiques as sexy, babyish, drooling, I just gotta get some of that!" We have the same problems throughout our schools here. I have had to get phone numbers blocked, but that won't stop the texting from the girls to my ds's. My second and third ds's have flexed quite well with thier different situations. They still come and talk to me about things.
"Then comes the bullying. Tears and talk of depression were what I was hearing from the kids at the other end of all this."
My oldest on the other hand, struggled with being bullied. Some of the authorities said that he should stand up for himself, and one day he did. That was the day he got suspended for three days. He tried to keep a kid from hitting him by climbing over the cafeteria table. His "unruly behavior" was what made the principal decide to suspend him. The other boy received the same punishment, even though my son had a broken pair of glasses, one black eye, and several other bruises. We had some rough years with worrying over the oldest, but after prayers and time he seems to be doing much better in his high school years. I hope that her school year is much better since you were able to change her school Cooked.
