Jack on Track Records

Age 11:

A week ago, Jack was accused of bullying a kid in his gym class.  We knew this accusation was out of character for Jack so Jay dug into it a bit. Ultimately, it turned out the other kid made a false accusation. Tonight I asked Jack about it. 

Me: So I heard you got your name cleared. 
Jack: Yeah. 
Me: How do you feel about that?
Jack (shrugging his shoulders): Fine. I mean, I don't feel different than I did before. Let's face it, that kid has a track record of making false accusations, and I have a track record of being awesome. 

We are working on his self-esteem.
