Teachers (and adults in general actually) always offered me leading roles, and always thought me to be mature and responsible.
I got to draw all the year books, edit the school paper (with a lot of my own poems), paint + decorate the school library (there is still a large Harry Potter painting I made hanging on the wall there) and I got the longest parts in all the school plays,.
I remember getting my hands on a specific long monologue someone else was supposed to do…I don't remember how, I just remember I was pleased to get it after all.
I was also the one other kids kept coming to for advice, or for help.
And I could almost always make teachers believe my lies.
I consider the above to be magical workings, though I don't think it had anything to do with being a child; none of this was enabled because I was "cute".
Frankly, earlier in my childhood I was down-right evil:
I threw my grandmother's glasses out of the third-floor window, run away from kindergarten, smashed my had into my sister's glass door (I still have the scars of 12 stitches), abused my Barbie dolls, got into fist fight... And all this (and a lot more) before the age of 6!
Fortunately, I turned out to be the well-mannered young lady I am today (=
