When Andy left Tessa, she waited and watched him leave before she closed the door. Now with Charlie, Trista closed the door when he left. With Matthew, Meredith went back inside the house before the limo left. When Andy left Bevin, she just closed the door and didn't watch him leave.

    Has me going humm.

    Were those individual feelings or was Fleiss telling them all how to act.

    Were two sets of good byes taped with the F2s?

    Regarding Li Ka Shing - i read a biography and he grew up very poor and father moved them to city and he lived with wealthy uncle who was very ostentatious - it made him determined to be philanthropic if he ever had wealth which he clearly has done - he is portrayed as living simply -said he left school to provide for siblings -i have a feeling one of these siblings was tessas grandfather who might have immigrated to the states or perhaps her mother came here - just more info and perhaps why there is nothing said either way - if not a relative why not just say no connection - but obviously don't want to draw attention to the connection

    Here is a letter I hope Tessa gets to read one day.

    Dear Tessa,

    I would like to thank you for the enjoyment you gave me watching you on The Bachelor.

    You were a breathe of fresh air. It was refreshing to see how you valued yourself.

    My friends and I enjoyed watching you have fun, be goofy, roughhouse and still be a lady.

    You have the most beautiful smile.

    I admire the way you were determined to stay true to yourself.

    I would be most proud if my daughter presented herself in a similar fashion if she were to do a show like the Bachelor when she got older.

    I would be proud of my son if was able to recognize your inner beauty and the gem that you are.

    You are a special person. You touched many young ladies more then you know.

    I wish you all the best in life.

    MomLady

    blaise in response to my post posted the above thing.

    All season I loved Tessa's decorum.

    I know to me as a mom, I would like my Daughter to behave in the way Tessa did if she were ever to find herself in this kind of situation. (And some others did, we had some classy ladies this season)

    As a mom, how do you instill these values in your children.

    I heard many saying about teaching values when children are smaller. I agree with that, we model proper values, empathy etc of the regular stuff. How about the more mature aspects of life?

    Re: Tessa - Bachelor 10

    As to the more mature aspects of life - you have to keep teaching these as they get older. You have to talk to your middle school boys about the ways to show respect to girls and the necessity of being respectful. You have to talk to your preteen daughters about the messages they send out by how they dress and behave. I play a game with my daughter when we are at the mall, where I ask her about a particular girl we saw. I'll say - why is she wearing that? What message do you think she is sending? How do you think a guy would react? What sort of attention will she get from that? I tried to get her to think . It's a constant process. Some years are easier, some are harder. But I think if you are consistent that the messages get through. And supposedly, parents can see this by the time their kids are in their twenties. I'll let you know. Apparently Tessa's parents got it. They understood how to teach their daughter to have self respect and how to behave in a group and also with a man. I am very impressed.

    Course there's no forcing a kid to "get it". Even within the same family, kids can take the same advice and do different things with it. Some things are learned. Some have to do with how are brains are hard wired.

    Thank you for posting your thoughts pajamasam.

    Intresting mall game.

    I agree there is no forcing, that is why not all children in the same family can be so different. Scary.

    MomLady, your screen name tells me that you are a lady with a capital L. You are off to a good start.
    Set a good example. Be dignified. Dress modestly and encourage your daughters to do the same. I don't mean Amish, but when we see people like Brittney Speers(sp.?) Paris, Lindsay, going through life as one big porn movie it doesn't take much to see that their chances for anything meaningful are nonexistant.
    Life isn't and shouldn't be a beauty contest. Get your kids involved in sports, dance, theater, volunteerism, where they can become part of something that makes them feel good about themselves.
    Nothing builds self esteem better than personal accomplishments. They will realise that their personal worth has more to do with that than if they own the latest fashion trend.
    Praise, praise, praise!
    Find out what their strengths are help them develop their natural talents.
    Respect any opinions that they can justify.

    Do your best, and hope for the best because when they get to 16 it is out of your hands. Even if it gets to the point where you think all is lost they may surprise you and after testing the waters they decide that you had them on the right track after all.
    It did for me.

    I'd like to invite you all to enjoy a general parenting exchange of comments and ideas in the General Discussion Forum. There's a lot of great folks posting there, as there are in all of the other forums here.

    And, in that way, we can keep this forum for any news and notes about Tessa that are appropriate.
