Discovery Channel

My 7 years old niece watching the Discovery Channel….

hmm....and we the adults (my brother…his wife….me…beloved husband and my mother) were on the edge of some hot gossip when she suddenly asked me…

Phoooophii?"

"Yes?"

"Suppose….if you wants a baby….and years later you don’t have one…and now you have decided to have one….”

"Yeeesss?"

"...does you have to mate ?"

"hmmm....."

Sometimes….watching Discovery Channel all day long can be confusing….especially for a child who takes everything literally...

hmm....sees life as black and white

....lives on a "need-to-know" basis.

I wish I could get inside my niece’s mind and pick my way through all the loose wires.

Perhaps too many to count….and perhaps too many to connect together.

What a fascinating world in which she exists…hmmm…..

  2. Salam,
    Sometimes I wonder what children think of the things they hear. Only rarely do we get to hear their thoughts, but they can be very amusing!

  7. Thinking,

    A child is always curious to know what seems confusing to him or her. We should not ask the child to keep quiet but explain in words as appropriate to age of child.

    Take care
