We were in the park yesterday when one child, perhaps 6 or 7, was wildly swinging one of the toys in the park in a way that was extremely dangerous to anyone else playing or walking nearby.
My wife went over and nicely asked him to stop, explaining that what he was doing was very dangerous to the other children, especially the smaller children.
Instead of stopping, this little kid had the Chutzpah to say (and say it in a way that was extremely Chutzpadik) that the small kids shouldn’t play there, and he will keep doing swinging the toy however he likes. She should go to another other area.
What do you think? How would you handle the child? Do you think a politician can help? How could a teacher help? Feel free to comment both here and on his post.
