Tonight’s Manchester Evening News led on a story of a 12 yesr old girl being fined £50 for dropping litter. Her dad was really upset — don’t fine the kids, use the money instead to teach them to be environmentally friendly.
In other words, it’s not my fault. Me, I’m just a parent. Not my job to make kids behave.
Noooo! That is exactly your job!
I have kids who would rather die than drop litter. I didn’t hit them, or abuse them, I simply taught them what was right and they do it.
And if you can’t, then please try harder.
