I was so impressed with my son this evening. We were all sitting around the table at dinner and Josh made a very poignant comment. “Did you know there are kids my age in other countries who have to work all day long?” Pretending (slightly) that this is new information, I said “Really? Was this something you learned in school today?” His response – “YES! They have to work all day long, every day and don’t go to school”.
“Wow”, I said. “Aren’t you lucky you have the opportunity to go to school and learn about how people in other countries live? Which would you prefer – working all day long or going to school?”
“Going to SCHOOL!”
