Re: How can Aikido teach you discipline if you love it?

Mary, we already provide washing and hand sanitizers. I had one really bad experience where the little dumpling had pink eye and couldn't go to school. Nevertheless, Mommy brought him to class without saying a word about his condition. I ended up off the mat for ten days myself with the only case of pink eye I've ever had. She explained that he was bored sitting at home.

That was exceptional and most of our parents are great. We still end up with colds and flu at the start of each school year though. The kids just get exposed to too many micro-varmints and unknowingly bring them to class with them.
