It’s hard being 10

and 8 too for that matter – I’ve been torn up this week because both my girls have been dealing with hard stuff, stuff I can listen to, stuff I can remember 30 odd years back too, but stuff I can’t take away from them & make it all better, stuff to do with learning how to get on with people, what to do when two of your friends can’t stand each other, stuff to do with feeling that actually all of them can’t stand you, and are just “being nice” to save your feelings. Most of all stuff about how they feel about themselves. Being a preteen is tough, not any tougher than it used to be perhaps I remember the last two years of primary school being pretty crummy to be honest. They’ll come through it, but there just are days you wish you could take it all away for them.
