Today’s “Tell Us Tuesday” morning meeting prompt inspired my slice for today. I “ask good questions” or so my students tell me… I smiled as I watched their reactions reading the question on the screen. Little eyes above masked nervous smiles caught each other’s gaze. Giggles erupted.
“What do you not understand about adults?”
– “Why don’t they watch more cartoons?”
– “Why do they work so much?”
-“Why don’t they play outside more? Like you know, slide down a slide on their bellies or roll down a hill and get a little muddy?”
-“Why are they so bossy?”
-“Why do they get to stay up later than kids?
-“Why do they have so much screen time on their phones but yell at kids for too much?”
-“Why do they have cigarettes if they know they’re bad and smoke them even though it hurts them?”
-“Why do they tell their kids they don’t have any money and then when you see their wallets, they have so much money?”
-“Why doesn’t my mom go in the pool during the summer?”
From the mouths of babes.
