Being nice isn’t always easy, but always better than the alternative.
Do my children’s vocabularies include “Excuse me,” “I’m sorry,” and “Thank you”?
Yesterday we watched a patriotic ceremony at Disney World as they took the American flag down. When they played the “Star Spangled Banner” the people sitting next to us on the bench remained seated, children and adults milled around not paying attention. Part of being nice is showing respect. Whatever you teach your children, teach them not to be embarrassed to stand, with hand over their heart when our national anthem is played. It is such a small gesture to honor our country and those who have sacrificed life and limb so we could visit amusement parks and many other places free of worry.
