East Brunswick Public Library Forgives All Late Fines For Kids

Hey kids or teens, have an overdue book from the East Brunswick Public Library? You’re in luck…

# – # – # – # – #

Maybe I’m an old curmudgeon but what lesson do the children get from this?

Like the “everyone gets a trophy”, it just sends the wrong message imho!

“Come home; all is forgiven!” should be “You promised; you knew the rules; you agreed to the rule; here is the consequences.” 

Children are smart and observant. It tells them that they don’t have to keep their promises.

Argh!
