The Playground Club

Playground

“Let’s call it the Playground Club, and we need to make rules about who gets in and who we ban,” Tommy announced.

Sally cried, “That will hurt people’s feelings!”

“Don’t get your knickers in a twist, Sally. No one at this school ever gets a medal for being nice,” Betty sneered.

“We’re no better than the bratty children if we create this hurtful environment, which is why I hate being a teacher!” Sally declared.

Snappy comeback, Sally, and welcome to the club,” Tommy said.

  9. Clubs, like jobs, depend on some kind of discriminating criteria. Hope our kids realize they don’t need to belong (or be accepted in) to them all. It would be a waste of their gifts and strengths to pursue everything. 😉
