Interviewing The Kids
I periodically like to interview my kids about stuff they like to do, things they study, and places they like to go. Usually it’s pretty standard stuff, but sometimes they say things that are uniquely revealing. Parents tend to forget, as kids age, how their children’s brains worked in years past. Obviously, a 5 year old’s mind is wired differently than mine, and thus their answers are going to come out differently. Kids see the world from a totally different perspective. It’s a fun exercise, interviewing them. There is no educational value to it, but it’s fun, and the kids will enjoy watching themselves on video when they get older. The only thing to do is to make sure to remember when the interview took place and to put the recordings in order and someplace safe.
I interviewed both my kids last night just for the fun of it. I have to admit that I don’t like listening to my own voice on these things, but I do enjoy watching the boys. I find myself talking to them in somewhat delicate terms, and that’s something I’m trying not to do. I try to talk to them like I would talk to anybody, but alas; they’re my kids and I love them, so I talk to them with a happily goofy voice. What can I say? Well, here are the videos. Enjoy.
