I love children when they get a simple concept that some adults struggle with all their lives. One day a student told me he had a GREAT IDEA! He was bursting with excitement and had the children around him excited too. What was it?
"When I grow up I am going to get a job! That way when I want something or need something I can buy it!" He was SO excited and was bouncing in his seat! I cheered for him while pumping my fist in the air. Sound silly to you? It better not because we sure need more like him that will understand the concept of working. We just took a few minutes and celebrated his great idea of getting a job.
As we were finishing up another boy said, "I think I will get a job too!" So guess what? We celebrated all over again. With kids cheering and me pumping my fist in the air. Great idea I told them. You guys are so smart! Before it was over we had celebrated all the children sitting at that table getting a job when they grow up!
Power to the people!
