Out of the mouths of babes.......

My son is 7 1/2. He was just sitting here on the couch watching the news with me while I fixed a toy. There happened to be something about the war in Afghanistan or some such. After the short news announcement:

Him: Why do we have so many wars?
Me: Because people don't know how to get along and play nice.

Then I went on to emphasize the importance of talking about things instead of just fighting. He was not that impressed.

  • I think he was less impressed with my answer. It was too boring or something.
