An Inappropriate Definition

| Learning | March 2, 2017

(I work at a preschool/daycare. A particular six-year-old boy has slightly more trouble understanding boundaries than other six-year-olds, and is constantly grabbing things that do not belong to him and touching people who don’t want to be touched. On this day, he’s been trying to reach into my pockets to grab my car keys and phone.)

Me: “Will you please stop grabbing things out of my pockets?”

Boy: “Why?”

Me: “Because I don’t want you touching my things without permission. It’s inappropriate.”

Boy: *shocked* “Inappropriate?! THAT MEANS SEXY!”

(I had to try hard not to laugh before explaining to him that the word “inappropriate” has more than one meaning.)
