GROWNUPS AREN'T SO SMART!
AND HeRE is McKenna who is 9.
Grownups ALWAYS finks they know more than little kids and us four leggers. THEY finks because they have went to school, and college that they are really smart and kids ...well kids are kids and dogs are dogs. That is the farthest from the truf.
I finks kids, and us four leggers are smarter when it comes to loss and grief. Most kids talk about the person they lost, sometimes a lot, while adults do not...they just buck up and go on, and shove it all deep down inside, and then later on they start to get a belly ache. Kids, well they cry about who they have lost and wish they were beside them once again. Grownups thinks they gotta be strong, and hide their tears. Pretty soon you start to see big headed adults walking around with a head full of tears they need to cry. Little kids well they hug you when they need to feel close and grownups don't. Little kids are honest and show their emotions all over their little faces.
Last night little Macey toles my mom that hers was sad cos it was her turn to stay all night at Grandma Teri's and now Grandma is gone. How honest is that. And Kenna said to my Mom, "Grandma it has been a bad bad week."
So please you-know -it -all grownups stop assuming that you know kids, and their hearts. Start listening to them, without interjecting your opinion, just listen to them. You may learn something.
