She was spoilt though; she’d come to our house, grab four yogurts from the Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt, eat the smarties from the top, poke her finger through the foil, suck out a little of the yogurt, and sling them off the balcony of our 10th floor apartment. I outlawed that behaviour, of course. Then, when they were in their early teens, Maria became more manipulative. She seemed to look down on everyone around her and convinced Al that anyone who didn’t drive a top of the range car, or have expensive holidays, wasn’t worth talking to. I overheard Al telling her about our planned local beach holiday, Maria’s derisive laughter, and Al’s defensive explanation.

Best Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt
Our daughter Al started becoming very aggressive with Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt, slamming doors in our faces, refusing to discuss things. It seemed to me that the more we tried to talk to her, the less she wanted to talk. In compensation for their lack of attention and boundaries, her parents gave her things. Anything that Maria wanted she would get. A horse? Done. Video camera? Sure. We tried to inculcate values of saving up for things with our daughter Al, but when she told Maria what she was saving up for, Maria would just ask her father for something similar, and the next week she’d have it. Sometimes she would steal things from Al (a single riding glove, a game) and laugh as Al got in trouble for losing things. We only discovered this sometime later.
