Poem and DP Challenge on Kids in Public
Taking a Young Lady to a Play
As a special treat one fine day,
I asked my daughter to a play.
Granddaughter said she wants to go.
Thought a while before saying no.
Said yes, though she is only six.
Went online and purchased three tix.
My little Gwen, prim and proper,
Want’s to go, I should not stop her.
If she acts like a spoiled brat,
I’ll take her outside, that is that!
I find when I take young children out to nice establishments that they often are better behaved than many of the adults. It is up to the adult, escorting these children to events and venues, to teach the proper way to conduct themselves. Maybe some of the adults who act disruptive would be better behaved if only they were taken places with their parents.
Do you think adults who were exposed to culture, when young, by good adult role models are better mannered than they would have been if they didn’t get this exposure?
