Some Candid Conversations

Photo credit; freepik  After teaching my 10-year-old student the meaning of the word priority, I asked him, "So, what are your top five priorities? Conversation A:   Little Boy:    Soccer, baseball, food, computer games, cellphone games... Me:              How about your homework??!! Little Boy:   That's Priority Number 2, 421... Conversation B Me:               How was your soccer match? Little Boy:     We lost... Me:                Why? What went wrong? Little Boy:      I was the goalkeeper. Conversation C   Me:                  In life, balance is very important. Little Boy:      Yes. I hope our school will have balance someday. Me:                  Balance in what? Little Boy:       Like... one hour class, one hour break time.
