Child Cross Examination?
October 21, 2011 § 1 Comment
Recent conversation in my household after school with early-elementary school child.
Me: How was your day?
Me: What did you learn?
Me: What did you eat for lunch?
Kid: Chips and milk.
Me: That’s it? What else were you served?
Kid: Hey dad?
Me: Ummm, yes?
Kid: Did you know some people are killed when they do crimes?
Me: Yes. It is called capital punishment or the death penalty.
Kid: Have any of the people you work with gotten the death penalty?
Me: No. Thankfully.
Kid: Do you like the death penalty?
Me: No. Not at all. I think it’s wrong.
Kid: But, I heard you tell mom that you wanted to kill the kid who pushed me down on the playground.
