Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR FEEDBACK -

PAR­ENT­ING SMARTS I’ve just read Are you Rais­ing a Mean Girl? (July 2017). What an eye-opener! My old­est is six and will be start­ing Grade 1 next year – ‘big school’, new rou­tine, new school and the chance to make new friends.

My daugh­ter is not a mean girl, but I do worry that with her soft, sen­si­tive na­ture she may be a tar­get for mean girls. No mother wants this to hap­pen to her child!

Thanks to your in­for­ma­tive and much-needed ar­ti­cle, I now know how to equip her with the skills to ‘fight’ back with­out be­ing mean or rude.

I hope all moth­ers of girls read the ar­ti­cle and fol­low through with the ad­vice given.
