OK, I have thought some on my previous post....

We will continue to instill our morals into our boys, to teach them to be respectful to all adults and teach them personal responsibility. They will continue to be punished when they are disrespectful and break the rules. They will be taught that they are not entitled to anything. They will learn hard work is what gets you places and you should be thankful to God for what you have in your life. They will be taught that life is precious and your actions will have consequences. We will do our best to do all of these things for them so that they are respectable, productive and hard-working men, so that they are respectful, generous, faithful and lovong husbands and fathers, so that they too will one day pass down these lessons to their own children. We will teach them these things, but we know that they as individuals will have to choose their own path. But the one thing we will not do is give up on them and allow them to treat others as if they are less than them, to disregard others to the point that their life means nothing.

We will do our best as parents to do these things and whatever else it takes for them to being decent human beings.

Hey, it's a great opportunity to talk. Obviously not with Haden and Christian, but certainly with Kaelen. Ask him if he heard about this story and what does he think about it?
