Painful TruthLast week, one of my daughter's teacher stopped me in the hallway to talk. She mentioned a writing assignment that was given days earlier. The kids were asked to write if they ever had to overcome something difficult and to say what they did to get through it. At the end of the class everyone was asked to share what they had written and my daughter flatly refused. I asked her teacher if that was problem. She said no. She just wanted me to know that my daughter had written about the divorce and asked if I wanted to read it. I told her thanks but no thanks. I want her to keep her privacy. If she wants to share it with me, then she will bring it home and read it to me.
She then adds that one of her classmates blurted out in class that the reason why she probably didn't want to read her paper was because it had something to do with her Mom and Dad's divorce. Another student chimes in and says to my daughter, "you'll never know what happens, sometimes parents do get back together."
According to her teacher, my daughter then says in front of her whole entire class, "I don't want that for my MOM."
