I got into a little verbal scarp with my older daughter recently. It was a quick exchange, didn’t seem that extreme, but she was nonetheless offended and went off crying.
A few minutes later my younger daughter gave me a little talking to, what had happened and what I should do about it.
When I came in the house a few minutes later I asked my wife if she’d heard my younger daughter talking…
My wife said “Yes, she’s sticking up for her sister, like her sister sticks up for her. She’s got her back.”
Who’s got your back?
