Some situations are viewed in black and white; right and wrong. Yet, many people think situations also have a grey area where solutions are not so easily discerned. This is about the choices people make, and the thought process they go through to arrive at decisions.

Consider: Submitted for Discussion

You decide to take your family out to see a PG-13 movie at your local theatre. You have your 10-year old and teenager with you. After getting popcorn and drinks, you settle in with your kids just as the previews begin.

A few minutes later, you feel someone tapping on your shoulder. It is a man you don’t know, and he tells you that your child is too young to see the movie. He comments about your lack of parenting abilities.

Do you think that you would find it easy to ignore him and just enjoy the movie with your family? Could you let it go, confident in your judgement and family choices, or would you get angry? Do you feel this man’s behavior should be reported to the theatre manager?

Alternatively, what if your spouse was with you, became embarrassed, and wanted to leave? Do you think that would change your actions? What if your spouse ended up in a fight with the stranger?
