The subject came up again this morning. I think a big part of the problem starts with us as parents. Julia is often the victim of the isolation game, but she's not innocent herself either. I would not put it past her to comment on academic measures in a snide way to another kid. And I've seen her be mean to her cousin Emily (although I hope I'm not wrong in noticing that has stopped since talking to her about it).

The truth is, I'm betting the moms of the girls Julia complains about most would react first defensively, then try to make it Julia's fault instead of considering their girls could be doing something wrong. The article mentions the moms thinking of it as a sign that their daughter is popular and being happy about that.

So the moral of the story is this: Don't assume your kid never puts any other kids down at school. Talk to them about how it feels when someone is mean to them and how important it is to not do that to someone else. Also how awesome it would feel if someone took up for you when someone was being mean and how you can be that awesome person for someone else when you see them being picked on.

Now I want them to have a way to star someone's post that has a link or something you don't have time to read so you can easily find it later. Get to it Google+.
