I wish you could speak at schools. My daughter, a 7th grader, is struggling with the “being unique, but still yearning to be accepted” dilemma at her school. She went in a confident, funny and genuine young lady and due to her classmates’ taunting and passive aggressive comments (always unseen and unheard by the faculty and staff) she is now a broken and tortured kid that has become angry and disrespectful of the very teachers that will not protect her. I wish she could see beyond these cruel years and her insensitive peers and know that her uniqueness is what makes her even more valuable. How do you convince a bunch of 13 year old girls to shut their mouths if they do not have anything nice to say?
