A conversation between a mother, a little boy and a fabulous teacher.

Mother volunteers in preschool classroom.  Mother is assigned to art table to aid children in decorating paper hats. Mother notices her child is not coming to the art table.

Paper Hat

“Buddy, do you want to decorate  a paper hat?” – Mother

“No thank you.” – Little Boy

Mother wrinkles brow and feels disappointed.  Mother speaks to fabulous teacher about her son’s lack of interest in decorating a hat.

“My son didn’t want to decorate a hat today.  I’ve noticed he doesn’t bring artwork home.  Doesn’t he like doing art at school?” – Mother

“We offer art to him every day at school, but he chooses to play imagination with his friends instead.  We are not concerned.  He seems to need to play with his friends.” – Fabulous Teacher

“Oh?  Oohh…I understand.” – Mother

Thank you fabulous teacher
