Celebrating the Non-Stereotypical
They are doing a great job of breaking through the stereotypes so often pinned upon teens and tweens. That's not to say we don't have door-slamming and foot-stomping around the place. That's not to say we don't have eyes being rolled at us or being told we are being unreasonable because someone didn't manage to convince us to their way of thinking. But you know something special is going on when Mr Busy can come and ask for a hot chocolate at 'recess' time, receive the answer "no" and still give his Mum a kiss before he trots off to find something else to do. Secretly I think he knew the answer would be no, but figured it was worth a try anyway.
I am conscious of how gentle they are on us, considering the mischief teens can get themselves into and today I'm celebrating and appreciating them.
