We all know that parenting can be a tough job, especially when it comes to keeping our kids safe. One dad recently found himself in a heated situation when his 12-year-old son asked to play hockey with friends at a local park. After a previous incident where the boys played without helmets, the dad was hesitant to let his son go unsupervised. However, after some pleading and promises, he decided to give his son another chance. But, as it turns out, the trust was short-lived. 😔
