Last year Evie (10 years old) mentioned to me that her (12 year old) sister Dani told someone at school, “it’s none of your business.”
Me: Dani, why would you tell your friend, “it’s none of her business?”
Dani: (after lengthy explanation) So you see it really was none of her business.
Me: Maybe, but you can’t say that to people. I raised you to be kind and sweet. And that phrase just isn’t nice.
Dani: Well, I’ve heard you say, “it’s none of your business.”
Me: I did not.
Dani: You remember the other night when you and Dad were talking and I wouldn’t go to sleep.
Me: Ya…well…that’s different. You wouldn’t go to bed and what we were talking about really was none of your business. I would never say that to like…a friend.
Dani: Aren’t I your friend?
Grumpy Grateful Mom Goal of the Day: None of your business.
