Mr. Wisdom

Wednesday, September 20, 2006

I don't like "S" in my class, mum. Why not?, I ask him? "Because he doesn't listen to the teachers and is always acting up. And...He interrupts the music teacher" (my son LOVES music). I am thinking about my response to this but before I can say anything, he quickly says..."But he can't really help it, mum. He's just scared. He doesn't know how else he should act." And then he is talking about a video game before I have even had a chance to process another thought. How does such wisdom come, in the form of a five year old?...

    your son is very, very wise..but then look at who he takes after :)

    How absurd that parents think that they can spew their infinite wisdom on their children; I think we should learn from our kids!

    You are too sweet. You've been eating too many faeries, haven't you :)

    kids have infinite understanding. your son is very sweet but also, very mature to be able to see the reasons behind irritating behaviour.
    i hope he starts writing his own blog soon. xx

    THAT my friend, is the $64,000. question. They are amazing, aren't they?

    Oh and MY son....can't stand music. I don't get it. However, he is always in a losing battle in this house, lol!

    I shared them. I did :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Oh no, no blogging for him....this is where my over-protectiveness comes in...

    This, I did not teach him. There are things beyond our teaching; he simply knows. Amazing...

    I think he would make a good psychiatrist. But I think he will be an artist.

    They have their own likes and dislikes and we can not mold them to our preference, nor should we. But MUSIC!?...keep trying! :)

    You shared the faeries, but then went back and bought the apple package, didn't you? ;)

    okay. it was the chocolate goldfish...who knew the goldfish had the faeries inside? i love the weird japanese snacks...just not the fish ones ;)

    It is amazing to hear kids think. The other day my 10-year old kids asked how come they are not often asked for what they thought of the war, George Bush, Tony Blair, global warming... !

    So, they started a newspaper that will talk about all the things we do in class and also what they thought of what's happening in the world.

    I told them they rock.

    Sounds like he already has more wisdom than me!

    I have to agree with Pat.

    Japanese fish snacks are dangerous; paralysis is known to occur.
    Take Care! ;)

    I think it is important to discuss current events and ask our children their opinions on them. I do this now, choosing the topics carefully, with my son, but already he has an idea of environmental awareness and the importance of taking care of the environment.

    You do not give yourself enough credit, Mate!

    So we learn in return from our children...
