After it was announced that Adrian Peterson is facing child abuse charges, many people decided to keep their Adrian Peterson jerseys at home for Sunday’s game. Of course, some people still wore them in a show of support (even just for the team), but they were met with criticism by the media.
Over the past couple of days, we have been discussing the importance of fostering self-confidence and creativity in our children. Our job is to encourage our children and teach them that what they can accomplish in life is limited only by their imagination.
