Yesterday woman from Germany, who lives near Detroit, told me that her 11-year-old son found some rotten vegetables in his locker. She went to his teacher and asked him if he knew why this could have happened. The teacher said, “I don’t know. Maybe some girl has a crush on him.”
This startled the woman. She said that girls in Germany would probably write a love letter instead of doing something insulting to the boy. I had to explain to her that American girls around 11 to 13 years old often insult a boy to get his attention.
What would girls of that age in other countries do in that situation?
