Old fashioned and proud of it
This is in response to the quote from Darrell Jackson (March 12): 'A group of parents and program supporters at Sandy High School (have) more say in athletics operations than maybe they should.'
We as parents are given a role that should not be taken lightly!
It's our moral obligation to step up and go to bat for our children.
When adults are being disrespectful, degrading and belittling to our children, in what's supposed to be a safe environment, action must be taken.
How can we teach our children to show respect, trust adults and be kind to others when it's not being shown to them?
We live in a society where it's easier to disregard these things or sweep them under the rug and not deal with everyday life.
As parents, we need to bring our children up in a positive, but realistic, home. Be willing to go against the flow, take a stand for your kids and show them you care.
Making positive change is a good thing. When has it ever been a bad thing? Never! By the way, if you haven't noticed, we have finally found the administration that holds the old-fashioned values of our children first.
Is it inevitable that Roslyn Lake be drained? Is there any way for the water to still be diverted to the lake after the Little Sandy Dam comes down?
Editor's note: John, hopefully our headline story in this week's paper will shed some light on this subject, although my guess is you won't like the answer.
