I'm having a serious attitude problem with this stupid "Heritage Doll" project for Gabriel's class. I don't have black construction paper. SORRY. Suppose I'm a working mom who's remodeling and has two other children and who just doesn't have all the right supplies? Not to mention the time. Or desire, or "creativity" we've been admonished to have. Or even the heritage! I SO resent having to spend my evening dressing up a stupid paper doll.
I have a friend who thought a project her daughter had to do for kindergarten was too much, and just refused to do it. Why don't I have that kind of nerve?
I need an assertiveness training class. Online -- so I don't have to face anyone in person.
