In the spirit of Art Linkletter’s and Bill Cosby’s “Kids Say The Darndest Things,” here’s one to remember. Sometimes these kids make a ton of sense.
If only we could hang on to these precious lessons and pull them out when we need them most. It seems the world would be a much nicer place if we could preserve the child-like innocence and wonder that we used to have.
A young boy, Jax, is enamored with the idea of looking similar to his friend, Reddy. The only difference that Jax noticed was that his hair was “spikey” and Reddy’s was not.
Jax requested a haircut over the weekend so at school on Monday the teacher would have difficulty telling the two boys apart. It sounded like a foolproof plan.
He was sure that it would be funny as the teacher would have a difficult time distinguishing the “twins.” The picture below shows Jax and Reddy, posing together before a Christmas program at their school.
The comments in response to this little boy’s commentary were amazing. Readers submitted many pictures displaying friends of different colors, recognizing and affirming Jax’s sentiments.
One lady told of initially not allowing her son to play with other kids by a waterfall because “they didn’t speak English.” The child quickly responded, “Well, they laugh in English.”
A teacher in a German elementary school told of overhearing a conversation between a mom and her young son. “How many refugees do you have in your class?” the mother asked.
“None mom,” the child responded. “They were just kids,” he explained.
Maybe we should start taking notes from some of these youngsters of today. They seem to have some great answers. Though they are young, sometimes they hit the nail on the head. “Out of the mouth of babes,” after all.
