It's been one month since Bethany started her freshman year at the charter school. There are daily tears, stories of boys behaving badly and immodest girls.
Last night, however, was particularly difficult: it appears that her project partner neglected to email Bethany her portion of a major project that is due today. My daughter, then, spent all day yesterday trying to finish said project on her own, unable to fully enjoy and take advantage of a rare "teacher work day". Then the printer decides to act up and thus began the waterworks.
I keep telling her it will get better, but now I'm beginning to wonder and to second guess myself.
What's a mother to do?
(for those with teenage daughters, who have "been there/done that",
any and all advice would be greatly appreciated)
