Maybe It’s Better Not to Know What Kids Think
It’s cringe-y and funny and it just upset me and made me laugh until I snurfed green tea out my nose. I think you should read it too. Chag Holland is Cynical Dad and he is capable of making your day better.
I help out in my daughter’s class. I used to just do simple things like copy papers and cut out shapes and crap, but somewhere along the line, someone got the dumb idea that I could actually work with the kids and teach them things. Big mistake. Last week, I was working with a table of kids and teaching them how to carry ones. One of the little boys at the table spoke up.
Boy #1: I’m the best in the class at math.—
Internal Chag: Um, no, or you wouldn’t be sitting here with me.—
Girl #1: No you’re not! Hamid is!—
Boy #1: That doesn’t count. Of course he’s the best at math.—
External Chag: Why is he the best at math?—
Boy #1: He’s from another country. All they do is math.
Internal Chag: What the fuck, dude?
