I understand. I didn't mean to make light of your concern at all.
.... I guess I was having an "it takes a village!!!" moment, LOL.
Like I said, I didn't want you all to think I was the buttinsky of the neighborhood. I just makes me sad to see this little girl doing the same things her older sisters did, and no one doing anything to guide her in another direction.
I sometimes have difficulty knowing whether to say anything or not. Some things are in a grey zone.
I do think you are right that it takes a village. In this case, though, I think the village (i.e you) will serve this girl better by role modelling appropriate female behaviour in an area where her mother might be failing. Anytime you can slip in that she is a smart girl with a bright future and you are confident she will make good choices, you will be a small part of the village she needs.
