Laura Does "The Right Thing."
09/24/2010
IconDr. Laura you have been part of the equation in raising our daughter, Laura. She is now 11 and makes us proud every day in her maturity and thoughtfulness. Laura skates on a synchronized skating team made up of girls aged nine to eleven. At the end of the last practice I asked her why she had been talking to two particular girls off to the side. What she said made me realize she "gets it." She said, "Mom, they were talking about one of the other girls on the team. I took them aside and said, "I am not going to put up with that. We are a team; do you understand what the definition of a team is? We support, encourage and work together. Talking about others behind their back is unkind and tears down a team not build it up." Dr. Laura, I don't know when I have ever been so proud of a lovely daughter that stood up for decency. Thank you so much for your strong stance in doing the right thing that has helped us raise our daughter. God Bless you!! N.
