Mean girl behavior is everywhere these days. Although we’re in the midst of the #metoo movement and there’s definitely a shift in the way women are finally supporting other women, there’s also the unfortunate reality that not everyone has jumped on the “sisters supporting sisters” bandwagon.
My 4-year old daughter came home the other day and informed me that there’s a “Mean Girl’s” Club at her pre-school. Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t take it seriously. But the fact is, those 4-year-old mean girls turn into 16-year-old mean girls who turn into 25-year-old mean girls who ultimately turn into 45-year-old mean girls.
Even my own mother at the age of 72 has recently been the target of some pretty mean girl shenanigans.
