DON’T TRY TO ARGUE WITH CHILDREN…
1) A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher
said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human
because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very
small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a
human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, “When I get to Heaven I will ask Jonah”.
The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”
The little girl replied, “Then you ask him”.
2) A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children
while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each
child’s work. As she got to one little girl who was working
she asked what the drawing was? The girl replied, “I’m drawing
God.” The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God
looks like.” Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing,
the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”
3) A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments
with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to
“honor” thy Father and thy Mother,” she asked, “is there a
commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Without hesitating one little boy (the oldest in his family)
“Thou shall not kill.”
4) One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the
dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had
several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her
head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “Why are
some of your hairs white, Mom?” Her mother replied, “Well, every
time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one
of my hairs turns white.” The little girl thought about this
a while and then said, “Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs
are white then?”
5) The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was
trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.
“Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown
and say, ‘There’s Jennifer; she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael. He’s
a doctor.'” A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And
there’s the teacher, She’s dead.”
