My Daughter is at an age where some of the girls at school have started being horrible witches nasty to one another in the playground. My Daughter has always been wonderfully quirky, with a heart for justice and the kindest, most empathetic person I've ever known. Old beyond her years (in a beautifully old lady way-she's recently taken to wearing her reading glasses on a chain round her neck grin)
The new hormonal nastiness has her outraged (LOVES a rule!) but not upset. Some of the things (particularly comments about her adoption) that she's told me have made me far more upset than they have made her.
I told her what I thought might be a good way to quieten the bullies and today my 9 year old loudly replied to one 'I'm sorry, did you MEAN to be so rude?!' Apparently other children burst out laughing and said bully stropped off. I like to think with a cats bum face. grin

The next stage of her initiation into the world of MN is to perfect the tinkly laugh.

Is she too young to practice her resting bitch face?

Llanali Wed 21-Feb-18 16:42:43

I was worried you were about to say she proclaimed «off you fuck «!!
Well done her. And I love the glasses chain!

Glad you posted here tbh as I don't read chat and I would've been deprived of some excellent justice being served grin

“My mum taught me not to say nasty things. Did your mum not bother?”

“Did you know that bullying is a sign of insecurity?”

Has she got the head tilt yet?

hesterton I can very clearly visualise her doing that one. She will especially enjoy the notepad and pen part. They'd have to hold up a mo while she retrieved her glasses from round her neck and slipped them on grin
