Remember,
we all want the same thing

Before I start, let me tell you this column is about no one—and everyone. It isn’t because of something that just happened, but something that happens every day.

We forget kindness when we are at our kids’ events.

We forget that we’re doing this for the kids.

We forget our kids are watching everything.

We forget to assume innocence.

We’re good people, so we volunteer to help at our kids’ events—4-H fairs, ball games, swim meets, gymnastic events, science fairs, dances, parties. They can’t run without us. The other adults there are our friends, our neighbors.

When things go wrong (and they will) which effect the placing our kids receive, we owe our friends the benefit of the doubt.

We’re all going to make mistakes. But that’s all they are. . . mistakes. Assume innocence in all mistakes. . . unintentional, regrettable mistakes.

We’re all after the same thing.

Don’t get hung up if someone does things a little differently than you would have done them. Don’t jump to conclusions.

Don’t let anger steal the joy of the event. Assume innocence in all things . . .

. . . and just be kind to one another.
