I have two girls, ages 5 and 8, so I have been around lots of girls their ages since my first was born. Lots and lots of girls.
Starting in preschool and continuing into the 2nd grade, there is one unkind sentence girls tend to throw around ALL the time when they get frustrated or mad.
Most of the time, little girls use it as a ploy to get their way when playing with a friend, not to be outright unkind or mean.
But I have witnessed many tears and hurt feelings of the little girls who are the recipients of this sentence. It’s hurtful, and just like teaching kids not to hit or bite, teaching kids to be kind is equally important.
Can you guess what it is?
