Start of 6th grade is like any other year. Problems with a few kids. This year it’s a kid named Ryan “Krepple?”. I won’t get into the details than to say how proud I am that you are standing up for yourself. If he pushes you, you push back. If he says something mean to you, you have a response for him. I’ve noticed you are doing so well speaking to teachers and admins anytime there is an issue. You speak up during our chats and during times when you have an opinion. This is something I was never able to do at your age. And to a point I still struggle with.
You are becoming independent. You are becoming someone who one day won’t need his mommy and daddy to stand up him. You are developing your voice, and you are making sure people don’t get away with means things towards you.
Ryan – you are my idol. I wish I could be like you, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. You will do amazing things in life. AMAZING THINGS!!!
