The Little Boy Who Cried...Dinosaur?
Last night for FHE we had a lesson on honesty. We read the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf and then played a Spin the Bottle type game about honesty. When the bottle pointed to you, you got to answer a question about telling the truth. Like, "You are playing with a friend's toy and you accidentally break it, what should you do?" or "You bump into your brother and he starts to cry. Mommy asks you why he is crying. What should you say?"
Andrew came up with great answers to our questions. So when he asked if he could ask us questions, we said sure! Not sure he quite caught on to the point, but here are our two favorites. We both had tears running down our cheeks from laughing so hard.
1- (With a very serious face) "Daddy, you go to see the doctor, and then you see Captain Hook, and Hook hits you in the head. What should you do?"
2-And his second question totally outdoes his first. (Again with a very serious face). "Mommy you see a wolf, and you cry, "Wolf" but there really isn't a wolf, but then you see a dinosaur...and the dinosaur eats you. What should you do?"
How would you respond?
