Addiction to Drama

If the only rush your child feels is related to hearing gossip, she has no incentive to let it go. However, if she gets a charge from gossip, and another one from shopping, and one from zip-lining, and from competing, and from dancing, and from laughing, and from a sleepover, and from a good book, and from hanging out with her best friend, and from skating, etc., the relative importance and impact of the gossip’s adrenaline jolt diminishes. Other activities crowd it out.
