That’s why I cherish this next story. Respect Is a Two-Way Street Sally was flying blind when raising her three kids. She didn’t have an ideal model in her history to go by. Even so, she encouraged her children to be their own persons, not clones of others, and to respect other people. One day her son got sent home from elementary school because he’d sassed his teacher. It seems she had gone around to all the boys whose hair was too long (according to her) and pinned their hair up with bobby pins, telling them that if they wanted to look like little girls, she’d help them.
She told him it takes guts and character for a little kid to stand up with dignity to an authority figure, in defense of the shamed and defeated. Mrs. Smith probably didn’t learn anything, but Sally did. She came face-to-face with her son’s personal integrity. I hope Mrs. Smith at least didn’t bully any more kids while that boy was in her class. We All Need Cheerleaders These stories have something in common: sympathetic adults who reassured the kids that they were not only OK, but terrific.

Finally the director said, “I guess you’re going to have to try something else. ), and I was overcome with emotion. I started to bawl and said, “Oh, Honey…” and bent down and brought her into my arms.
