    Stick to your guns Val-Holly’s going to whine something awful but it’ll be worth it in the end

    my grandkids are required to hand over their phones every night to “recharge” in mom’s room. Also my daughter and her husband set up the accounts and have all the passwords and check the phones every night. Also same thing with the ITouch for each of them.

    Next time, Holly, if you have a problem, do not tell your mum about it, she only makes it worse.

    Almost consistently, Holly is cruel. The cartoonist must know some really awful kid to write this strip. Holly just..chooses selfish. Chooses mean.

    Actually, virol may be appropriate here, as it combines viral with vitriol.
    You especially don’t want vitriol to go viral.

    Okay, I’ll say it:

    Bully for you, Val!

    Maybe some come comments are a bit harsh on Holly – she did feel guilty initially; asking Evie if she’d ever done something she regretted – so she still has some fuzzy moral boundary. It’s all part of growing up and Jan is very good at recognising and portraying that.

    So who of us is so perfect we haven’t done something like this as a teen? We didn’t have smart phones when I was a teenager but we did say a lot of nasty things about each other. It was always she said this about you and what do you say to this one? Same thing, different method these days.

    Yes, In the Middle Ages we had something we called “slam books.” defines a slam book as "
    “A spiral notebook with the name of a jr. or sr. high girl (usually) written on the top line. The books [sic] is passed around among classmates who write nasty things (slam) on the page under the girl’s name.”
    I recall seeing these in Junior High – the comments were not always nasty, but often were. The books were a guilty pleasure, and against school rules.
