This iReport is part of an assignment:
Why so many public outbursts?
Learning by example
At the dinner table we often discuss events that occur in the news, at least the ones that are PG. This past week has been plethora of lessons. The kids’ reaction to discover someone had called the President a liar was almost comical. Daniel’s eyes almost popped out his skull. James shook his head saying. “That’s not right.” Alexis made the face: I don’t wanna know happen to him (Mr. Wilson). The kids know never to argue with the ref, you will only cause more damage. However nothing like having a star athlete pegged with a 10,000 dollar fine that drives the point home. The kids don’t know much about Kanye West, but they do know if you have had too much to drink and then don’t pay attention to what’s going on your chances increase on doing something incredibly stupid.
The great thing about having a week like this is that I don’t have to make up stories to prove me right. Learning a bit of self control can go a long way. A lesson one hopes the a fore mention people will take to heart.
