At the end of the day the initiator of the day was disappointed
with some of the “play” that went on and emailed a couple of the families.
During the time at the park there had been some boys that were
“panting” each other. In other words, they were trying to pull each other’s pants down. Of the three families represented by these boys, one parent sat and did nothing; another pulled over one child and told them to stop, but when the play continued the parent did nothing; and as far as the last family goes, the parents were not present at the time of “panting”.
The email addressed that “panting” is not respectful to others. As Christians we are to respect one another and it was not only uncomfortable for some of recipients, it was also extremely awkward for the girls at the park.
Each family that received the email had a different response, but one response stood out.
-The last family, quickly replied to the email by stating, “Have
noted the problem and are dealing with it here at home.”
What a beautiful response! Let’s be like that mature parent;
receive correction and act on it.
