DEAR ABBY: My 8-year-old granddaughter has posed a question that stumped me, and I hope you can help with an answer: Why be neat and well-groomed?Dear Abby considers this an "adult conversation"? Perhaps this explains why she give such bad advice.
She doesn't care what people think of how she looks. She sees no problem wearing clothes that are torn, etc. ... I am challenged by her question. How can I answer her?
DEAR LOST FOR WORDS: Please stop trying to have an adult conversation with an 8-year-old. ...
No, grandma was trying to have an 8yo conversation with an 8yo. Kids need explanations for stuff like this.
