Today, we received an email from O’s nursery school that ECDA’s CEO will be visiting them, thus timely attendance on that day is expected. The principal further added in the email, “we are confident that our children will impress them”, much to my chagrin.
When did my son become a tool to “impress” someone? Did the CEO not expect children to be, well, children?
And apparently one of the teachers bought a Lightning McQueen watch to “bribe” them, saying the watch will go to the best behaved child on the day of the CEO’s visit.
I was concerned about what my son thought about it, so I asked him. And the result was something quite unexpected.
Though I still wonder, will my son be as cool and collected when he realized the watch would not be for everyone?
