What Children Remember

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – Recently on the playground, a first grader fell and hurt his lip. When he returned from a visit to the nurse, he announced to his teacher, “Nurse Teresa put gasoline on my lip.” His teacher said, “Don’t you mean that she used Vaseline?” “No, no,” he insisted, “it was gasoline!”

Children do not always interpret reality the same way that it is perceived by adults. This little boy knew the word gasoline, so he was sure that this was what the nurse was using.

When teachers are speaking to small children, they are always in danger of being misinterpreted.
