Heh. This from the parent of one of the children held up as an example
of well-behaved children!
As a non-parent, I agree. I am still amazed by the behavior of SCA
children when I compare it to the behavior of non-SCA children. They're
paragons of virtue! Even when I compare the child that I was told was
the worst behaved in Bryn Gwlad to those outside of the SCA, I still
think that way. (BTW - before any Bryn Gwlad parent gets paranoid, he's
no longer active in the SCA.)
I'd really hate to think that Bryn Gwlad is the exception to the rule.
