Elders, G’s and YG’s
At my son’s school it seems you can have three categories of friends. There are the Elders – these are older kids who take a sort of paternal interest in you and look out for you. Then there are your G’s, who are your peer group friends. I think it’s short for “Good Friends”. Finally there are your YG’s – that is, Young Good Friends, kids in the lower years whom you take a paternal interest in and look out for; and to them, of course, you are an Elder. It’s kind of neat, isn’t it?
P.S. May I bring to your attention my comic fantasy YA novel The Infinite Powers of Adam Gowers – here is the link: https://unbound.com/books/adam-gowers . Go there and you will see a neat little 2-minute video of me explaining why the time for this novel has come!
