Use Your Words

Last night I read some stories to my son for his homework assignment. The stories were from a client of mine who publishes children's stories designed to uplift moral character. They're really wonderful, and each story comes with discussion questions at the end. Schools can subscribe to the stories and use them in their lessons, so I dropped off a sample for my son's school principal and I'm hoping she'll subscribe at some point.

Anyway, after reading one story about two kids trying to resolve a conflict, I asked my son what he would do if he had to deal with a conflict like the one in the story.

His reply: "I would use words, like Martin Luther King [Jr.] did."

Maybe my son's school is doing a good enough job as it is! ;^)
