It may be Autumn, but I am doing a ‘Spring Clean’ on this blog.
This is one of a number of ‘draft posts’ I had saved.
I think now is as good as any time to post it.
As a parent and a teacher, I have strong views
about the use of the word ‘boring’.
Children can be bored.
In class I do my utmost,
to ensure this is not the case.
But I think allowing one’s children
to use the word,
gives them a ‘button to press’
in order to get a reaction from adults.
I ask the children in my class
not to use the ‘b’ word!
Instead we have learned a list of words
that can be used instead of ‘boring’.
I love not hearing the ‘b’ word
and hearing the children use
a variety of interesting words instead.
What do you think?
