My grandson had a bruise on his forehead, a not unusual occurrence. My daughter told me he’d been the recipient of an aggressive act by another child at daycare, apparently not the first by this child, as my daughter advised that the child’s parents were told he could no longer be welcomed there.
This made me see a comparison to the “presidential debate” we witnessed recently. My grandson has been civilized somewhat by his daycare and his parents. You don’t want to take him to Costco, though, as he will tear off his mask and misbehave. He really wants to win if we play a game, EVERY TIME! I still don’t change the rules for him.
Why should the Debate Commission change the rules of debate? Revert to playground rule; if you can’t play nice, you can’t play. Shut it down, take ‘em to the principal’s office, call the counselor, time-out in the boiler room, expulsion, whatever, but you can’t play.
