The Fargo police force should lay criminal assault charges on the people involved in the fight between parents, thereby restricting their movements between countries (Dressing-room punch-up in Fargo, Feb. 12). The local hockey associations, meanwhile, should ban them from attending any hockey game for life.

These kids are eight years old -- what kind of an impression are you making?

Parents should instill in their children that it is only a game, and in the game there is a winner and a loser.

Something is terribly wrong when we have to control grown-ups at their child's hockey games, or any other activity their children are involved in (Parents to learn some respect, Feb. 12). And people wonder what's happening to our kids?

Rydell Lasko, president of the St. Vital Hockey Association, hit the nail on the head: It's about life lessons, teamwork, work ethic and respect.
