Now I feel bad
I have mentioned before that I coach mini-cricket at school.
This afternoon during practise there was this one little boy who laughed at the other boys who battled to bowl. I warned him that if he laughs again, I’m going to have him sit out. Not two seconds later, he was laughing at a kid again. I sent him off. I’m not letting any kid make the others feel embarrassed. He threw a tantrum that would make any 2 year old jealous. Full on with hands, feet en alles!
I just asked one of the other little guys to go call him, when his mother walked up to him. Oh shit she’s going to kill me. I told her why I let him sit out but that he could join us again.
She said that she had warned him about throwing a tantrum and that they will be leaving. That he won’t be coming to cricket practise again.
Now I feel bad. I did not mean for him to never play again. I just wanted him to sit out until it was his turn.
