One of my extremely hyperactive, misbehaved, needy little boys asked me a very interesting question yesterday. So of course I gave him a very interesting answer right back.
He asked, "Mister Teacher, why do some people grow up to be bank robbers?"
I could hardly help but give the answer I did. "Well, A, those people just never learned to make good choices. It probably started with them making very bad choices in the third grade, like stealing pencils and lying to their teacher. Then they did things like that all the way through the rest of their school years. Which is why it's so important to start making good choices NOW, when you're still in the third grade."
He probably forgot that he had even asked me a question midway through my answer.
