Mom Truth: kindness goes a long way with our kids.... May 01 2015, 0 Comments
As many parents often do, I like to think about what qualities my children have developed. Are they nice to others? Are they respectful with adults? Where do they fall into this social game we call life.
Recently my daughter and I were walking and she saw a 'friend' up ahead from us. I quoted that word because after this encounter I am not really sure that they are friends. That is ok. I know the whole world can't be friends, but can't we at least be polite? So, as I said, we were walking down the street and she was holding a bag full of stationary goodies and wanted to show them to this 'friend'.. So she called the name of her 'friend' and started running towards her. The 'friend' glanced back, saw my daughter and started to run. Towards her you are probably thinking... but no, sadly, she was running away from her. My sweet girl continued to call her name and run. The 'friend' was walking with an older sibling and the siblings friend. They all looked at my girl, the older ones laughed and the 'friend' continued to run.
