A teach­able mo­ment for par­ents

RE: HSR must get rid of bad ap­ples (July 10)

I read with in­ter­est the mom’s com­ments end­ing with, ‘Bus driv­ers need sen­si­tiv­ity train­ing to work with the pub­lic, and HSR needs to cull the bad ap­ples’. Maybe. Or per­haps we need more par­ents to use a sit­u­a­tion like this, first and fore­most, as a teach­able mo­ment to help their teenager learn and un­der­stand that there are rules and that the rules are rea­son­able and that the world does not re­volve around the child’s for­get­ful­ness (even on a hot day).
