My 13-year-old daughters shared a funny story with me this weekend: When they were in the second grade, one student each day had to give a compliment to every other student in the room.
The compliments were usually boring such as “you’re a nice person,” but one “compliment” stood out in my daughters’ minds. A girl said to her fellow student, “B, I like your big, yellow beaver teeth.”
Oh, the teacher got mad! This isn’t what she intended for this self-esteem exercise! But the second-grader thought she was giving a compliment — she explained that she liked beavers.
