What happens when you live on a street (a Cul-de-sac) perhaps and no one wants to play with your child? At first I couldn’t figure out why that was happening — but I saw this little girl outside one day, so desperate to have a friend, that she was willing to let these neighbor girls tease and taunt her but when they started to hit her, I couldn’t resist and went out and put a stop to it. I went immediately to the parents to explain their actions and from their attitude, they didn’t care. They didn’t want to get involved with their children’s friends. I realize then that these kids would turn out exactly like their parents. That’s sad — Luckily this little girl found friends a block away and avoided the ones on her street. But why are people like that?
