Picking Your Friends

A few days ago, I had a brief conversation with a Milwaukee cop who is a friend. The convo was occasioned by a report of an assault in the Riverwest area.

His thought, distilled: kids can pick the wrong sort of friends.

Maybe the most important function of parenting is to show-and-tell your children how to pick friends--or how to avoid real problems.

That sorta becomes frightfully clear when you read this story.
