Tears

Well, I mistakingly thought that Air's announcement didn't affect our oldest son. I said, "See? He's growing up. He can take it." Air wasn't too sure and told me not count my chickens.

During class today, I was speaking about Lashon Hara and how it compares to killing. My son raised his hand and, with tears in his eyes, asked, "Is it Lashon Hara to blame a goalie who messed up a two-nothing lead in a playoff game?"

I told him it isn't nice to speak ill of anybody, even if you don't know him, and to judge everyone favorably. We don't know the circumstances of anyone's game and we shouldn't judge anyone unless we have been in their exact situation.

"And," I said, "they didn't have Yzerman."

FYI - Yzerman did play last night. He had an assist and won some big face offs.

Is it hard to have your son in your class? I once had my mother as a substitute teacher and caused her a lot of problems but that could have just been me.

Your mom isn't a teacher professional, Swifty. I've been doing this for long enough that I know how to teach anyone. Even my smart-aleck kid.
