The Same Rules Apply

We can no longer assume that people know how to behave in common spaces. We need to be deliberate about teaching people what used to be taught at home. We must publish these rules and put them at all of our park sites from pools to golf courses, from skate parks to ice arenas. While keeping quiet is not always appropriate, the rest of the rules will transfer to other sites run by park and recreation departments.

Perhaps if we work together to hold up a mirror to these behaviors, we can turn this around.
