Teenage dating jealousy
She says please and thank you and doesn’t interrupt people… The notion that each parent loves all his/her children equally is just that – a notion.
Either their child is jealous, or else they have experienced jealousy themselves as children.

These findings were analyzed by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Their parents got together as a group every few months, and each time, I would babysit the kids.
As I was organizing them into a game, one of the girls came up to tell me something her grandmother had told her.
” She shouted, “Yes.” “You have to stop hitting me and stop shouting and then I will listen to you.” She kept hitting me and shouting, “You must listen to me – only me.
As she whispered into my ear (it was a secret meant only for me 🙂 ), the most aggressive of the lot, a 4 year old, pulled the scarf around my neck tight, almost strangling me.
I took what preventive action I could and yanked the scarf out of her hands.
The aggressive girl pulled my scarf tight once more, but I slipped it off my neck.
She then started yanking at my clothes and hitting my legs, shouting that she wouldn’t let me listen to the other girl.
