    I was thinking...

    So many films and television shows seam to glorify cattiness between females--of any age. Camaraderie just doesn't seem to be acceptable.

    And, regarding the transition from child to young adult, there doesn't seem to be any real cultural guidance to replace childhood play with acceptable tween/teen activities. Other than sports (and nearly everyone knows my opinion about that!), there seem to be few options for individuals to develop and learn to like themselves without worrying about what their peers think.

    I'm so thankful I was involved in ballet at that age. Serious physical activity, discipline, opportunity to learn things not taught at school and some really fun times. And, yes, some cattiness. Just can't seem to get away from it.

    Even as adults there is Cattiness...it never stops....honestly

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    "Oh. Well, it would have been nice to have you along. We do ____________ when camping" (Filling in the blank with all the fun things). Not very nice of me, eh?

    Sometimes though, young adults are more affected by what is said to them by people (adults) other than their parents.

    That's what I mean. S'mores and the other fun things you do, not to mention having experiences that she's not had before. It's all well and good to prefer one thing over another, but it's more valid to havce a basis of comparison, eh? (Heaven knows I'm so not a camper). :D :D But I know that because of having gone camping throughout my childhood and enough times in my adulthood to know that it's not fun for me.

    My brother on the other hand, loves it so much he nearly doesn't take any other holidays.
