I overheard a situation where someone was giving a well intentioned but poorly skilled person a butt chewing for an overeager mistake. Personally I'd have handled it by explaining what I see as the problem and helping the culprit see how he could fix it at best and at worst helping him fix it. I know Bobby Knight won Championships with a different approach. Thinking of working with my boy, I'd have been troubled but not angry if he damaged my lawnmower trying to fix it. If he played video games instead of mowing the grass..then I would be angry. .
