Lola announced that yet another little girl in her class has been heckling her. This particular girl says nasty things to her and displays the middle finger. I asked Lola if she had told her teacher. She said no, and I already knew that. She is not one to tattle on another child. After some thought, I told her maybe she should go to her teacher, show her middle finger and say innocently, “Ms. G, what does this mean? Jasmine just showed it to me.”
1) Lola would not get into trouble for tattling by being an innocent party in asking what it means, and
2) Jasmine would be found out and appropriate action would be taken.
…hey, it’s worth a try…
