CHILDREN MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS

KIDS by KRISS on 05 december 2015

CHILDREN MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS You will be told so many time but never believe it until you experience but children are selfish calculating evil little creatures.
I am only joking but what is true is that children have a way of their own to evaluate a place based on surprising and biased evaluations.
I will immediately illustrate what I mean so it gets perfectly clear.

When the children woke up in Florida and went to the supermarket they noticed the following elements :

- The lay out of the houses reminded them of a series they like (Malcolm in the middle).
- The supermarket was full of crap junk food they don’t often get to eat.

Well believe it or not, that was enough for them to settle the case and discuss how great this place was, how better than Costa Rica it was and why they would certainly move there when they grow up.
They had been in the country for a couple of hours.

This example simply illustrate that children are children, not to be mistaken with little adults, they think impulsively, change their mind in a flip of a coin based on completely irrational thinking.

I asked them if they missed the jungle, being able to play in the hot waves at the beach, all the animals but suddenly all of it was gone, all they remembered was the filth in the streets, the ant bites and the high prices.
They went from fresh fruit craving to junk food craving and I thought to myself : God Bless America !

I admit I was puzzled and disappointed at first and it even upset me.
Had all my family lost their adventurous self to the mermaids of hyper consumption ? I came to think of it and honestly don’t think so.
They are just children and already very conditioned by the westerners way of life they were used to in UK and in France.
Also, if given 2 choices, children will always go for the easier one (as most adults will too).

I am still confident though that their traveling experiences will benefit them on the long run and that they can learn to adapt to their own way of living wherever they are.
Teaching them to achieve this will be my next task it seems !
