read the article, it explains it better. Basically This bully picks on her in school. She used to fight the bully but got suspended so the counselor taught her to do dep breathing when she get's mad in order to avoid getting "too hyped" when being bullied. 

She does this but the nully decided to fight her anyway. And the bully's friend jumps in also.

I feel bad for the little girl, but there's got to be some responsibility on the part of the parents.  Why do they keep procreating?  Yes, they all live in one room, but she can still sweep the floors( there are cheerios on the ground in one pic, fold each child's clothes and put it in a cardboard box, throw out the food containers.

Pretty much the parents seem to be doing nothing but collecting the checks.  Who is looking our for the best interest of the children?

Actually I read about one and a half chapter of Dasani's story and come to find out that she has two step siblings.  The father in this article is actually her step father and he has brought about two or three children into the marriage.  Also her mother (Dasani's mother) also had a crappy childhood with her mother (Dasani's grandmother ) smoking crack for most of Dasani's mother childhood.  She eventually got herself clean but unfortunately passed away from leukemia.

It's interesting because from reading  the article you can tell her mom has a lot of love for her. But she picks up some truley truley bad habits from her at the same time. 



Her mother has some demons that she needs to get rid of if you ask me.

I don't know if this is apt but there was a article published not too long ago that stated that poverty has a orifound effect on decision making skills, which in effect keeps them poor.

Hopefully, Dasani will rise above what has been handed to her (poverty, ex drug addicted parents,etc). An 11 year old with so many adult burdens. God Bless her!


I did too. I hope I hope she, and her siblings, are able to rise above their circumstances.
