I LOVE NICE CHILDS!

The children were gorgeous. The people were nice. I was treated like a valuable person with something to contribute. I learned that I can easily do things I didn't think I could do.

I also learned that 7.5 hours at work can lead to unconsciousness and forgetting to take one's medication. Oops.

The work was harder physically and my brain melted but children rock because, unlike their teenaged counterparts, they DO NOT SUCK OUT YOUR SOUL!!! They are happy to see you. They want to please you. They are easily punished by five minutes in a corner.

And I loved the staff's approach, one that would never have worked in my old job. "Just ignore him."

So, play with the other kids and ignore whingy. AWESOME!!!

YAY!!!

Huzzah for obedience and ignoring of whingy! And you are so right: little kids do what they're told (for the most part). My favourite time of year is the very start of term one, because the year sevens are these adorable little things who obey you and are polite... and then they gradually start to realise that they can get away with stuff at secondary school and they begin their descent into being horrible little monsters.
