The father dismissing the child was an excellent example of the opposite of empathy. I think many adults sometimes brush aside what a child may be feeling because they may see it as ‘not a big deal’ or think they need to just get over it. I thought this was a great way to show that a child needs their feelings acknowledged even if what they are upset about is over something seemingly small.

Вода у чврстом стању је лед. То је једна од ретких материја која се шири са смањењем температуре (за ово нисам баш сигурна).
Течно стање је вода, какву најчешће користимо.
гасовито стање воде је водена пара.

Her tone goes from very self-centered, as in my lies got me all of these friends and I don’t care that they don’t know that I’m lying, to very nonchalant at the end where she admits to lying about all of these things in order to gain the trust and friendship of the other girls in her class

I thought this metaphor was actually very intriguing and was really well written, as well as played really well into her tone and the goal she had for the narrative.

This comment is ignorant and I find it very powerful. It shows a perfect example of a closed mindset.

He chooses to use awkward instead of a word we would think someone use like upsetting, it just gives light that he grew up feeling out of place and he felt confused being mixed.
