We are all familiar with the adages “kids say the darndest things” and “from the mouth of babes.” What is the most surprising piece of advice you have ever received from a child?
“After my mother passed away, I had something of hers
that I didnt want to throw out. My daughter, in her young
wisdom, said, Mom, if you throw that out it doesnt mean
you will forget your mother.”
– Joy Nastaskin, Bookkeeper
“The two best pieces of advice I received from my son
are: never clean a fish tank with baby powder - it doesnt
work. (He was about 3 if I remember correctly. He tried
to be responsible and clean the tank himself.) And try to
find something positive in all negative situations. He said
this last month – he gets this outlook from me.”
- Trish Aguiar, legal assistant
“Catherine, age 5, the happiest kid, I know: If you turn on the music in your head, you can dance whenever you want.
Matthew, age 9, regarding schoolyard woes: If people are mean to you, you should be nice to them so they learn to be nice, too.
First aid tip from Owen, age 6: If you hurt your nose, never
put a band aid over your nostrils, because then you wont
be able to breathe.”
- Courtney Mulqueen, Associate Lawyer
