“Most children are raised by amateurs, not professionals.” - Bryce’s Law Want to know what to expect of the work force in the years ahead? Look no farther than our schools or homes. Let me preface my remarks by saying that in addition to all of my other responsibilities, I was very active in my local Little League for a number of years where I served as coach, umpire, and on the local board of directors. Further, I have been very active locally in offering Masonic scholarships to High School students. In addition, my wife has been active in the local school system for the last ten years at the elementary, middle, and high school levels (this also included PTA and SAC). Although we probably won’t win an award as the world’s best parents, we made a point of becoming an important and influential part of our children’s lives. We didn’t take any special courses in parenting, we just got involved. But we are the exceptions as opposed to the rule.
