My daughter (now 17) completely went against a whole class of girls in junior school that had fallen out with one girl. She would have been on her own if my daughter hadn’t remained friends with her, even though this girl had ganged up on her in the past. I thought it showed a great strength of character and the girls mum even rang to thank her. – Zara x

I remember a student of mine mentioned he was playing a gig at a church function, but needed a decent bass to play. I said hey, let’s stop at my place and you can use my Bass and amp. His dad said to me after, “Thank-you, but how could you trust a 17 year old kid with $10,000 worth of equipment?” my response, “Well if I don’t trust him, how will he ever become trustworthy.” The show was great too and I still have that bass. – Chris
