I wasn’t going to write about this but it seem as if there has been a break-out of “middleschool-itis.” Basically it’s a communicable disease that breaks out in isolated groups, usually affecting women primarily. The symptoms of middleschool-itis are: talking behind one’s back, sending passive-aggressive emails usually in all caps, and and overall failure to communicate well. If left untreated, middleschool-itis can evolve into the more dangerous “highschool-clique fever” in which the affected become even more isolated and irritable and only want to be around their own kind.

If you suspect someone has been affected by middleschool-itis, the best remedy is kindness and good manners. Usually those affected by the disease are not aware they are compromised and usually a booster of kindness is all that is needed to end it all.

Matthew 22:38-40

38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[a] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    Can I recommend 2 books for you?
    “Queen bees and wannabees”-a book on teaching your girls about cliques.
    “Queen bee moms and kingpin dads”- a book to help women see where thay fit into the “hive” situation.
    They are both enlightening, and its embarassing also to see how our (female) behavior is so predictable.
    My remedy is to smile at everyone within a 2 foot radius, “bee” genuine at all times and try to live as transparently as possible.
