    Oh Isobel that is just sooo wonderful - it should be put in for some kind of award.

    What a fantastically inspirational daughter you have.

    What a talented girl, she must be encouraged to write as much as possible, at her age there can be a real torrent of good writing. I wrote prolifically at that age until I was about 15, very similar stuff to what your daughter has written, it just flowed off the end of my pen, I don't know how or why! I wonder if it is the same for her? After 16 I could not do it so easily but I have a folder full of stuff I wrote and I still like to read it. She obviously has tremendous insight into other peoples feelings which is just fantastic and is probably due in no small part to her very empathetic Mum!
    I think you must be bursting with pride, I know I would be.
    She must keep this up and make sure we get to share her poems, she is a talent to reckon with!

    Lots of love

    She deserves them. My day is often surrounded with nutters to hear such a talent is so refreshing. Tell her to keep going with the creative writing and art. Expression is the key...oh and the science!!!x:rolleyes:

    Well that's an amazing piece of writing period, but from a 12 year old - fantastic. You must be very proud of her Isobel.

    Isy, hi, hun. This poem of Tanith's is breathtaking for her age and show's her level of insight and understanding.

    I think, personally. tha she will end up in a profession where persoanl qualities like this can benefit vulnerable people.

    This is a message for Tanith and you Isy so could you please(if poss and you agree with what I've said) let her read it with you?:) Naturally hun, if you don't think it's appropriate at the mo, just let me know.

    Hi Tanith,

    I have just read your poem and wanted you to know that I think it is brilliant, touching and could possibly help other kids of your age who have experiences of bullying and feeling alone, with no-one to turn to.

    I would really like to show this poem to my boss at the agency where I work, but I could only do that with your permission as the poem is yours. I know you've met me a few times now but maybe don't know what I do for a job?

    Well, I am a Young Person's Drug and Alcohol Worker and that includes talking and listening to young people like you, who can have loads of things that worry them and they don't know what to do or who to speak to. My job's not just about drugs and alcohol but also about bullying, feeling down or alone or anything that is making a young person feel sad.

    I think your poem could be so helpful to other kids your age that I am thinking it could be included in the leaflets I send out to all the schools down here in Yorkshire.

    Have a think about it darling and see what Mum thinks as well. If you're not sure about it at the moment and don't want to, that's totally ok and maybe we could have a chat when I visit Mum again in January.

    It really is a special poem Tanith.:)

    Lots of love,

    Lacey...xxx:D :D :D

    You are no doubt rightly proud of your young lady Issy.

    She not only writes with sensitivity, but also at a standard, well advanced of her years.

    She has a real talent. If only I had that depth of feeling, let alone the lalent at 12 (or 41 for that matter).
