Too true! Hey, the Wicked Witch worked for me (along with those ugly monkeys).
Rev, we're close in age. I, too, was the big one who was led away from the table...what's interesting is that I always loved being around adults. I had not many friends my own age, they were always my parents friends or associates. I could be in their library or living room and converse with them about whatever they were speaking about...that, or sit at the piano (at my mother's strong suggestion) and play.
I hear you about why should we move? I guess we should exercise common sense in situations like this. Perhaps it's not appropriate to always be the one to move...and then, it's not appropriate to always be the one "confronting".
YES, the parents should be looked at! Oh yes...
