Assets In Action: Honor peace officers this week

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, we look at neighborhood boundaries, which is when neighbors take responsibility for monitoring young people’s behavior.
As summer is at hand, this is the time for building the relationships with local youth in your neighborhood.
If your interactions are positive now, the result could be great, in the event that summer fun becomes something less fortunate.
Try and follow this train of thought when it comes to relationships with youth. The positive experiences you have are like putting money into a savings account. Those interactions build over time and then when something takes place, especially something unexpected and you have to make a withdraw. Hopefully you aren’t left with zero.
In a perfect world, your interactions with everyone would be handled the same way.
Think of how life would be if you always did your best, gave people the benefit of the doubt and called out bad behavior.
If a situation becomes more than you can handle, sometimes you might need to call in the professionals.
National Peace Officer’s week is May 11-17, with a special day on May 15 to take a moment to recognize the peace officers in our community.
I find it ironic that we have gone from a time where you always respected the badge to one of always challenging the badge.
