Today’s installment comes from a conversation a former co-worker had with her daughter after she graduated from the campus preschool she attended at our community college.  She had recently begun her school year in kindergarten, and was expressing her concern about the “stop-light” approach used by teachers as a classroom discipline policy.  Children’s conflicts were qualified  using traffic light colors (green = good; yellow = warning;                                 red = bad/stop/problem).

Child:  “Why don’t they talk it out, and try to reach an answer to the problem?”

In honor of Labor Day, it seemed fitting to share this anecdote from my recent experience as a crossing guard.  This exchange with a 5-year old girl took place last winter, following my return from a day away at a long-planned cross-country ski trip.

Girl:  “Where were you yesterday?”                                                                      Sheila:  “I was on a ski trip.”                                                                                         Girl:  “You should do your job!”

She added this assessment over her shoulder after hearing me chuckle to her mother about my beginner falls.

“You must not be very good.”
