Welcome to Thursday's Life Court...
Scott and Sadie,
I park a block from my kid's school and they walk to meet me. A lot of parents do this instead of waiting in the pickup line.
Every day, I see a mass of children walking by. From time to time I see micro bullying happen. A kid will push another down or a snowball is thrown. I never do anything about it. I figure that it's kids being kids.
But yesterday, a kid was pushed down, and I swear we locked eyes for a second. I could see that he was wondering why an adult was there doing nothing. So a question for Life Court: Do I need to step up my parenting on other people's kids? Or leave well enough alone?
Good question. What's your advice for Alec in Scott and Sadie's Life Court?
