My six year old daughter proudly stated today to her four year old brother ...
"Hitler was a bad man because he wouldn't share his food with his mates"
if only things were that simple

Priorities are different when you are six, that's why she had to explain it to her brother - he won't fully understand for at least a year :cool: Ann
ps I bet she had that - THAT - look on her face, the one that tells you that she knows everything. I just love em when they're that age

At a similar age to Nev's daughter, I was taught at school about Jesus being crucified. I went home for lunch and found my mum gardening, she told me that she was just planting some anemones.
I then said 'We were told that Jesus had them'
My mum was confused and asked 'Who told you that Jesus had anemones?'
Me: "Our teacher, she said that Jesus had enemies and that's why he was crucified." I didn't really understand why my mum couldn't stop laughing.
I never paid much attention at school - this is where I need a smiley with a dunce's cap.

Its nice to know that I'm not alone in the dunces corner
I once asked my maths teacher
Sir, why are we learning this
( differential & integral calculus, quadratic equations etc etc )
He told me that if I was going to work on computers
then I needed to know this, and if it didn't understand it
then I was stupid
well, I'm using this computer
I put in all kinds of video cards, sound cards, memory upgrades
and I've never used any of that maths
and I still would ask Sir why are we learning this
I already know the answer
to keep maths teachers employed
I love the simplicity of kids
and despite the best efforts of my wife to make me grow up
I'm doing my best to stay one

I married my second husband at 2.00p.m. and then we set off to take the two kids, (my step-daughter aged 14 and my daughter aged 6) to my In-Laws, who were going to look after them both, whilst the two of us went to Cornwall for a week's honeymoon. Not wanting to skimp on a second marriage, we had booked two rooms at a Hotel for the night, one for us and another for the two girls.
Picture the scene at breakfast, in the Hotel Dining Room the following morning, quite crowded unfortunately, when my six year old asked my husband (at the top of her voice) .........
Did you enjoy sleeping with my Mummy then?
Guess who wished the floor would open and swallow her up?! |blush|

This thread is bringing back all sorts of memories. My 13-year old son has been reading these messages over my shoulder, as I scroll through them and has just reminded me of an incident when he was younger (he's now just gone into the kitchen, cringing with embarrassement and cursing me) - anyway, about the age of 3 or 4 he loved anything to do with Vikings and long boats.
We went to a nearby toy shop close to Christmas and surrounding us were loads of Lego building brick sets (which he still enjoys making) - one of these sets was of a longboat with a crew.
Now the problem was that when young he couldn't pronounce the letter 'V' properly - it came out as an 'fu' sound. In a crowded shop he said in a load voice, "Look Daddy, they've got fu*ings".
Weary father puts head in hands and sobs gently.

My sister was off school quite a bit when she was little and as a result was dragged around a fair number of women's meetings where Mum had been invited to speak. Bored out of her mind she "disgraced herself" on two occasions.
The first was a long long meeting when there seemed to be so much business that the end of the meeting was fast approaching. She and my mother were sitting at the front of the meeting with everyone facing them and she leaned across to my mother and said loudly into one of the silences, "There's not going to be any time left for you, Mummy". My mother, once she'd got over her embarrasement, took her queue from her daughter and gave them the full talk as she'd prepared it. Needless to say, the meeting ended late.
The other was when she announced loudly to the lady sitting next to her as they were about to say the Lord's prayer - "I think the Lord must be bored of his prayer!" Come to think of it she hasn't changed her opinions on these matters much over the years!
Picture the scene, small demure child and her mother visiting a rather strait-laced lady 'out of duty'.
They go into the back garden where the aforementioned lady is having a new lawn laid.
Small child takes one look, points and says, "S*d", to which the straitlaced lady gives a gasp of horror, the mother is lost for words, and the small child says in all innocence, "My daddy's got lots of sods in our garden as well...." :o
My father was very careful with his gardening terminology after that :D

I was trying "to help" my son with his Maths when he was about 8. I'm really giving it some Wellie about fractions and get on to ratios. Then one of those moments when you think "Has he understood a word I've said?". "So, S****t (just in case he reads this) do you know what I mean by a ratio?" "Yes, Nelson". Don't you just Love 'em |laugh1|

My son aged about six or seven had very good ideas about money. If he asked for something and I said that we didn't have the money, his answer was 'Give them a cheque then and you won't have to pay.'
