I happened to catch the Real Housewives of New Jersey this last week. I observed a beautiful young girl, Gia, kicked around in a very sad situation.

Gia, who is 10, noticed her uncle cheated during a family game and became visibly upset. Instead of honestly talking to Gia, her mother’s friends tried to discipline ¬†and belittle her about being disrespectful and a bad sport. Truly, Gia was acting up because of the underlying tension of the adults

Gia is a bright little girl who understands the concepts of right and wrong and a loving adult could have resolved the issue by respectfully talking to her.
