Some people might believe that what is to follow in this editorial would be positioned better on a sports page rather than an opinion page. After all, the editorial deals with a sports-related incident.

But not so. While the foundation of the editorial is an incident that occurred at a high school ice hockey game, the bigger point of this writing is about the respect and decency all parents should strive to instill in their children, from their early years until the time they leave home to pursue their hopes and dreams.
