Well written and poignant. I really enjoyed this story as it touches on the stresses (and joys) of being a parent of a not-so-easy child.

Great job developing the story and the characters. It kept my attention all the way through and i had to laugh at picture of what had happened. I can definitely understand the challenge as a parent and teacher of trying to be firm in disciplinary situations when i really want to laugh.

You've captured the erratic side of parenting a difficult child and combined it so brilliantly with insights which suggest some teaching experience as well. Congrats on your placing and your EC.

Congratulations on your 2nd place win this week, Jan.

This little child spoke truth to the others. I wonder if she really is the broken one.

Raising a difficult child rings a bell with me. I love this story and congrats on your EC 2nd placing.
Beautiful emotion-filled story showing stress of not only the mother, but alsoof a precious little girl who became stressed by unkindness till she had to react.
