What happened here? I thought to myself. Where did Devin’s parents fail? Where did Morgan’s parents fail? Would Morgan remember this incident for the rest of her life? Would it scar her? Would Devin grow up to treat women badly, or was this just typical playground behavior to be expected of a boy who still thinks girls have cooties?
Before I could find answers to these questions, I had pulled up to the curb of my older son’s high school. I asked my older son the same questions I had asked my younger son: “How was your day? How was your Valentine’s Day?” Unfortunately, my son proceeded to tell me another story of ungentlemanly behavior.
