I'm cringing a bit listening to DD1 (8). She has written a story 1250 words long and she has just read the whole thing to her friend. Now she wants me to print a copy off to give to the friend. Friend is being nice ('that's a really good story'), but should I be stopping her?
I feel it's a bit overbearing, but on the other hand I don't want to stop her being proud of her work. WWYD?
Thank you... Maybe I'm being a bit controlling. You're right, it is between her & her friend. It just feels a bit much to make someone sit & listen while you read out something as long as that. And I wonder what her friend's mum will think if she gives her a copy? Won't she think it's a bit showy-offy? But I don't want to discourage DD who has worked very hard on the story.
