around here

last saturday at our friend’s end of the year party, there was an altercation between Lily and a classmate where personal boundaries were pushed and disrespected

parents had to get involved and a he said/she said situation is never easy

phone calls and texts were exchanged throughout the week, feelings and emotions were high but eventually on wednesday Lily and her classmate met up (with parental supervision) and Lily got to share her truth, her feelings and got her power back

it’s important more than ever to talk to our children about respect and consent

so proud of our girl for being strong, standing her ground, facing someone who scared and disrespected her and for speaking her truth

happy friday friends
