This is something of a challenge to answer objectively. I'm going to try instead just throwing a random assortment of advice out there. See if slacks are an option. When I was in a school with a uniform, I had a friend who hated skirts and she wore slacks instead. (A polite question to the school can answer that easily.) However, I actually found skirts to ...

Instead of pushing her away by showing animosity towards her boyfriend, have you considered inviting him in, getting to know him and making him feel welcome? If she didn't tell you about him sooner, it's probably because she thought you'd be judgemental about her decision (which is normal, children generally do care a lot about their parent's opinions, no ...

Well I currently assist in teaching a junior class (ages 4-14) and I can find some of the younger ones a bit difficult to teach. However I started my self 10 years ago at age 5 and a half (i'm 15 and a half now) and I really enjoyed it as a child. So I would say any age really, as I feel it was the fact that I started so young that has allowed me to not only ...
