I thought this was cute..

Clip to ScrapBook #1

So I was in the store the other day and I overheard a boy (maybe about 10) ask him mom, "Why is John so mean to you mom?" The mother replies, "Well, I guess because he is a teenager." The kid says, "Well, when I am a teenager, I won't talk to you like that or be mean like him. It isn't right." At this point, I smiled at the kid and walked away...

Maybe there is some hope yet. I teach high school and rarely do I ever get a truly polite kid. So many kids are so rude/disrespectful/defiant/etc. (Please don't get me wrong - I love what I do, but not the nasty attitudes)

Anyway, it was just so great to see such a nice kid.. made my day.
