A Teen's Dilemma: To Share or Not to Share?
So, here's the conundrum. Our young protagonist, let's call her 'Miss Independent', is being asked to share her maternal grandparents with her stepsisters. But she's not having it. Why? Because these moments with her grandparents are the only times she can openly talk about her late mother. Plus, she fears that if she lets her stepsisters in, they'll be there every single time, encroaching on her special moments. It's a tough call, isn't it? 😕 Let's see what the court of public opinion has to say about this...
