Well, you SHOULD be very proud of her. To write something like that, from the heart, truthfully and honest is difficult even for adults. If she wrote like that as a child, I would definitely say she will be a very successful adult author. Then to be able to accurately compare two sides of a person-----thats unbelievable! Comparing and contrasting anything takes real insight (which she obviously has). Have you thought of submitting it any place for publication?

I hear you lorri, I don't know many adults that are creative enough to see two sides of an individual, I think it is great that she has this skill at a very young age and how wonderful to have it recognized by your state. Is she still writing?

They actually did release it to a bunch of newspapers but I myself didn't get it published any where. Would it be too lat now? It has been a couple years.

Well, of course not---I would say go for it. You know maybe during drug awareness/red ribbon that they always have during October (here in California anyway) your local paper could publish it.

And I think it would be a wonderful boost for your daughter to see it published, have you tried to contact your local open door or drug abuse counselling center.

Okay, okay kids. That is a good place to start. God knows we have enough counseling centers around here. I will give it a try. They also have them a certain times in school but I am not sure with the way kids are these days if I would want to bring that to her school. It could turn out bad, especially with all the labeling and teasing that goes on these days.
She just started this school a few months ago so I think this wouldn't be wise. Can you believe her school never even recognized her achievement. They kept saying they were going to put it in the schools newspaper and never did.

I agree---I can totally see how something could backfire on a kid, especially when they are in middleschool.

I teach in a small private school and we don't see too much of the "junk" like goes on in the public schools. Oh, we do have problems and issues, but I think in a smaller type atmosphere, there seems to be more observation by faculty.

We use to live in a smaller school district and It wasn't too bad there but when we moved to a bigger town and she started going to a larger school we both got a rude awakening. She came home crying soo many times. They would tease her form evferything from her clothes (which were very up to date) to her teeth (which are perfectly straight). I think it is considered cool to pick on others. She has adjusted vedry well now and has alot of friends but I tell you those first few months I could have pulled my hair out.

Some kids will PICK on anything----my daughter always had the cutest clothes, etc. But, she was teased unmercifully (especially in middle school) because she was very timid and shy and wouldn't speak up for herself. Once she found a couple of friends and a "group" she did much better. But, I'm with you----those first months of middle school were HELL on both of us. She is now 27 with 2 kids and is still somewhat shy, but it ismore of a lack of self-confidence.

Kids can be down right mean sometimes, I really think alot of it comes from not getting the correction at home, if they are taught to have a little respect for those around them then they will be less likely to behave this way. I know that some times it is hard to control, but some parents think it is completely harmless, I think it depends on the kid, this picking can devast some kids where others just brush it off.
