This extraordinary reflection attached was recently written by a 12-year-old girl who felt alone much of her elementary school years. At times, she sat alone at lunch and played by herself at recess. She also experienced bullying.

Her mother shared with me how their family weathered this heartbreaking period. She wrote: “We held together and practiced unconditional positive regard for my child. There were many days and nights spent talking about anything and everything—smiles and laughs, also tears and confusion.

She’s now in 7th grade and that reflection still shines bright. Yesterday during lunch, a 6th grader was looking for a place to sit and my daughter called her over to sit with her group of friends. 

How beautiful that her daughter ended up writing about that moment when her English teacher asked students to do a free write.

 I love this story. It’s very beautiful. It gives hope to understanding pre-teens. I may have been there once, but it’s different for every one of us. So, for the next generation, I hope this story will help you through.

 Thank you so much for all your posts! I’ve been following you for sometime and love the inspiration you give me to be a better parent. My 7 year old daughter told me about her “new” friend today. Just a girl in her class the past month that she hadn’t played with before.
SALE

Made me happy to hear her reach out to someone new. And reminding her how much more important kindness is than the good grade on her math test she’s anxious about tomorrow.

Shifting importance to doing your best, being kind and not worrying about subjects that are difficult for us was just what she needed to hear to calm her before bed! Thanks again!

I know that this will help so many introverted children out in the schools today.This is so needed today.Brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for your blog
This is for adults too. A simple gesture of kindness can turn someone’s day entirely around. Don’t you love when you hear something or read something that confirms to you as their parent “they get it!

But my Little girl is the warmest human I know. Ready with a wave and smile. Brave enough to catch the eye of another child. Ready to welcome a new friendship. Endlessly.

Someone did this for my daughter at lunchtime this year. She was so thankful and relieved. She hopes she can pass along the same kindness some day.

Simply beautiful. There are some girls who fall into the “mean girls” category and sometimes it’s to go along with the crowd but then there are girls like this who show empathy towards others and they are the girls who will succeed in life.
SALE

My 4th grade daughter is the kind, vulnerable one who is confused and hurt by the sass and sarcasm and cruelty from the ‘cool’ girls. no doubt she’s experimented with this too, but what she tells me is that she feels hurt and lonely when kids talk like this.
SALE

I keep encouraging her to be just her, not to play along or fake it for that illusion of inclusion, keep herself safe from cruelty, and that friendship comes from trust – and that everyone, even the cool/mean girls, will someday know that they can trust her (as one from my 4th/5th grade years did when we were about 38).
SALE

She is a very special girl, and loved so very much. Her parents have always taught her to be kind, no matter what. You never know what someone else is struggling with, and kindness should always be the answer.
