What if your kid was too obedient?
This week’s offering is about an insect experience. It’s inspired by my fellow tribe-writer Kath Unsworth, who hates spiders and highlights what !unfortunately might happen when a parent demands unquestioning obedience from a kid!
Another snippet from The Unguided Missives of Katie and Zoong (one of my works in progress):
Do not disturb Not on any account
It’s a hot and buzzy afternoon
And Mama’s tired to the bone
She mustn’t be woken up
Not on any account
Not even if I see
A lazy flying wannabe
Float right along my Mama’s teeth
And decide it needs a good look-see
On no account
I was told
Do not disturb
Not even if
A fly happens to happen by
And drop right in
Have you ever given strict instructions to your kids that boomeranged? Tell us about it.
