This is some of the best advice I've heard......share this with ANYONE and EVERYONE who this is a struggle for. I think every kid, "cool kid" or not can benefit from these words.
This is the very thing that scares me to death being a Dad. You NEVER want to see your kids get hurt.....our little Elsie seems like she might have some quirks and might be a bit odd and, actually, I LOVE that. I want that for her but it also scares the crap out of me because I know how mean kids can be. I hope she has the strength to take it and/or the foresight to not give a rip. And I only hope I am equipped to not only make her feel better, but to reassure her that it'll all be ok, as well as encourage her to stay true to who she is.
Mr. Sheeran, you're going to be a VERY VERY good Daddy one day. (Assuming he wants to do that)
