Kindness by a Kid, Overblown by Adults
I saw this video and thought, “oh how nice of the kid”. But after a few minutes, the constant propping up by the announcers, and then the TV time, free jersey, press conferences, first pitch of a game, isn’t it way overboard of a reward for an act of kindness? Is this the type of reward that people are going to come to expect to do something nice for another? It’s not the kid who did anything wrong, I think it’s the adults. Imagine the kid who didn’t get the ball at first. He started throwing a tantrum. That’s bad. Did he say thanks for the ball? No. What about his actions? Totally forgotten. The parent didn’t say thanks either.
