Thank you so much for reading. Your insights as a parent are especially helpful to me. I nearly included a few lines about clothing in the story because I see how the styles available for “tweenies” pushes them to strut aspects of themselves they do not understand. But your input is based on experience, the daily struggle to raise your kids, and therefore carries more weight than anything I could say. Best luck to you, and thanks again for taking the time to read my story.
