Do they have to?

Sometimes, I wonder why I teach the kids to think for themselves??

Sometimes, I can tell them something and they receive it at face value. I mean, it's not like I steer them wrong.
I give them an honest answer to the questions they ask.
Sarcasm may or may not be involved at times.
But this whole thinking for themselves thing??

Is it really important?? I mean, other than when they vote.

Or buy a car.

Or shoes.

Okay. So it's important.

Today three children were whining. I started to get onto them and then tried to wrap it all up with humor.

It went something like this:

Come On Guys!! Stop the whining!!
It's just .... You're going to make me start whining.
I hate whining. It makes me sound like such a baby (baby in my case meant wuss)....

Mini-Me sitting next to me said, "Isn't that kind of the point?"

I guess if I'm going to keep up with these thinking children, I'm going to have to stay on my toes.

but not literally.

And that would set me off into laughter. I say, "My next kids are gonna be stupid". :O)
