Dancer down

Alex badly sprained her foot. Bad enough that she stayed home today (she has a cold too and the combination made her want to skip school).

The amount of begging and whining for Josh or me to stay with her was out of control. Alex actually ripped Josh's shirt a tiny bit, by refusing to let go of the hem in an attempt to convince him to stay.

She is 15. Plenty old enough to do tons of things for herself. Alex will go to school tomorrow. Even if Josh hadn't offered to give her cab money to get there and back. Because having her at home encourages Al to be too whiny.

Is Alex in counseling? I think she could use a bit out outside guidance here. Ripping Josh's shirt is not okay.
