There's been a situation brewing for the past few months that finally came to a head today. It could be looked at in a variety of ways, flipped and spun to accentuate the positive or the negative - or looked at from a multitude of sides - children... parents... figures of authority. Quite simply, my daughter has her first nemesis - an enemy of the smallest form - but only at times, and it's a situation that could've been defused a lot earlier if the adults involved were better communicators, and less combative. The first step? Admitting openly that your child is no angel. Mine certainly isn't, and I have no problem telling you that outright.
