“Never do anything that you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics.”~AnonymousUh….Yeah.
The second thing that actually comes to mind is that anyone that works in the field on education truly deserves a round on applause.
We are highly trained professionals when it comes down to it. Synapses firing like locomotives when a child is in distress…or…has gotten themselves in distress…..ahem.
So we’ve all see them… infants, kids or preschoolers that get into activities a bit more than others. Daredevils…or…well sometimes I don’t know what to call them other than the paramedics.
I wasn’t this type of child…I was smaller than most, so I guess before I could get into something I was mowed down or picked up and hurled out of the way….those were my type of injuries.
You know, the best lessons can be learned when every one was affected by a situation and can remember it for years to come…..(it is always my hope that it is positive outcome and usually has some humor in it).
I can tell a child is about to do something pretty off the wall by their facial expression…it’s about then I move in closer and make eye contact letting them know, ‘Are you sure that idea will hold together? May want to put a little rebar around it and rethink it again…’
What are some experiences you have had?
