Just before you read this: my dad is an outstanding kind man.
He was at home today and a little girl about 8 was riding her bike and fell going down a hill, she scraped her knees, hands and face up really bad.
Dad recognized the little girl as a neighbors around the corner, so he loaded her up in his truck and put the bike in the back and drove her about 30 seconds down the road to her mom who was doing gardening.
The mother knows dad well, and thanked him for driving her home, but after the mother checked her dd out and made sure she was ok, she went all over her for taking a ride from my dad, b/c SHE didnt know who he was.
Dad was just trying to be nice, he didnt realize it was going to get her in trouble. But it made me think, when a kid is in a bad situation like that, they are more vunerable to "help" from anyone.
You think your kids will do the right thing, but maybe not. Just passin along a reminder!
