Now I don’t claim to be a perfect parent, but I try to be the best one I can be. When I see other parents being not so good role models I kind of cringe. Our kids are our future and who we will leave the world to. Are they not entitled to at least good or decent role models while growing up?
Friday I took my kids to a packed Southwick Zoo, and a family cut in front of us and a line of like 500 others that went down the road. My immediate reaction was to tweet pic them and out them but I realized that wasn’t any better. I smiled at their kids and let it go.
Today a guy with his kids in tow tried to pass me by heading across a double yellow line just because he did not agree with me letting a person out of the CVS parking lot while at a stop light. When I pointed to my head like he should think he sped his car into on coming traffic and pulled up alongside to flip me the bird.
I reminded him he had his kids in the car and that he was in oncoming traffic. He sped off narrowly missing a head on collision. The incident was enough to upset my 6 year old daughter however. It upset her dad even more.
We all need to share the earth folks. Please if you have your kids with you, try and be a good citizen if not for yourself then for them.
