Man, I am so glad my daughter finds new places and new people fun. If a kid learns nothing else except:
1) that other people are far too interested in themselves to notice you
2) what other people think of you is none of your business
3) not much counts besides ** having a long term vision that you can change as evidence suggests, ** having the ability to stick with a long term plan, ** having the patience to work through the difficulties, ** having the guts to not be afraid of being knocked down, ** having the nerve to stick with it until you achieve success. Every other think is of far far far less importance. No grade in no subject will count as much.
