This is why I homeschool. There is nothing worse than eco-terrorists scaring 3-year-olds.

I suppose it only counts as bullying because everything is bullying these days.
Being a busy girl, Yelena had a habit of not wiping her hands after washing, so her skin turned dry. I talked to her about drying her hands, applied moisturizer several times a day, and in a few weeks her skin was baby soft again. Then all of a sudden her hands got dry again.
I asked her if she wipes her hands well in pre-school, and she said, no. Turns out a certain Miss Smarty Pants admonished her for using more than a single paper towel. Per Miss Smarty Pants it kills trees. I can’t say I was surprised by this development. I told Yelena to not worry about the trees because we will plant new ones, and that, in fact, we farm trees in this country. And if Smarty Pants ever tells her that she can’t have another paper towel, she can relate that novel concept to her.
