365 days Writing Prompts:Childlike
Explain your biggest regret__ as though to a small child.
I have spoken to children as part of my job, they were curious ready to learn, which made my job easier.There was a boy named Mark in my class, he was a very talkative child once I told him to go back to his seat, in reply he said, “Why?”
I said: “because I’m telling you to do so.”
Mark was in a playful mood that day, he repeated again: “why?”
It seemed he wanted to linger on to see what my next move would be, this time I said, “I’m your teacher, you must listen to me.”
Not willing to give up, he said: “but you’re not my boss, are you?”
I smiled and told him: ” in this classroom I’m your teacher and your boss.”
He smiled back and replied: “okay I believe you, now I’ll go back to my seat.”
I did not have any regrets but I was curious to know what else he’d come up with, it was a friendly dialogue which the rest of the kids also enjoyed.
