Teaching Moments

Yes, being a teacher you use any moment as a teaching moment. Even if is about sex to your own children. Today we go to Lowes to buy a female end to an extension cord. My 11 year old is laughing about it being called a female end. But it is my 6 year old that asks me why we call it a female end. So I simply tell her it is because it looks like a girl ~ it is shaped inward. And male ends stick out like boys. My son turns around and looks at me and said, "Really? I didn't know that! Wow!" My daughter said, "oh!" To her it was no big deal~she knows we are not created the same and she is ok~My son is at the age of sexual awareness and is a typical boy. That is when we headed to lighting to pick up lights. My 11 year old son~ starts staring and laughing at the lights.




What does it look like to you? Does it look like a boobie to you well it does to all of us. I am beginning to see how sex can sell everything even lights! I hope you will now never look at lights the same way again! Just remember when you see them and giggle everyone else will wonder what you are laughing at.
