Hey folks. Johnny Bailey here, new to the site. Social transition is in full play right now….. It’s getting hairy out there now, but not hairy enough to raise kids to constantly be on the defensive to the degree that they’re considered loners or oddballs. That’s the paradox….. the best of both worlds is needed currently, and that’s a very fine line to walk. I teach my 2 teen daughters to be polite, act correctly in social situations, but to FOLLOW THEIR INSTINCTS. If a given situation FEELS off, ACT IMMEDIATELY AND ACCORDINGLY. If offense is taken or feelings get hurt via misconception, apologies are easy to do. Better than the alternative…. Further, teach them how to handle every firearm in the house. God forbid, transgression occurs one time when you’re not at home. Thanks for putting this experience up Anika.
