It’s a good feeling to know that you’re raising a decent, respectful child.
This morning, our 7-year old son Kyle was honored in school today. He was one of 16 students (From Grades 1-8) who received a “Peacemaker Award” for responsibility. Kyle’s teacher nominated him for being helpful, obedient, and supportive of his classmates. Being a Roman Catholic school, the presentation was made during mass in front of the entire student body. The missus and I (along with my in-laws) were on hand to see him receive the award.
Like most parents, there are times when we are disappointed in our children. Sometimes, they act like knuckleheads – like Dad. But, to be honest, Kyle is a model student. He earns good grades and has never been a discipline problem. This award is just icing on the cake.
We are all very proud of him.
