Hi, all. I hope everyone's year is going well so far. So far, 8th grade agrees with Jeannie.:thumb:. As she's in her final year of middle school, I'm already looking ahead to high school. High school for Jeannie will either be the local one up the street, or a Christian one different from where she goes now. My concern with her heading into high school is how timid she is. I love that she is quiet and laid back, but the negative here is that she also allows herself to be excluded, insulted, and bullied. I use every chance I can to build her esteem,and give her chances to grow with responsibilities. Before she heads into high school, I'd like to see her grow more sure of herself. Thanks for any advice..
