Children are so literal...

As I work in a school children are always falling over scrapping their knees etc. its usually a quick sniffle and they happily skip to first aid but occasionally  so very occasionally you have a serial offender who thinks their world is going to end. And who can blame then the other day I stubbed my toe , I had to eat three biscuits have a cup of tea and watch mind sapping  day time television just to recover .

I usually joke with the children if they have hurt themselves ( obviously if its really serious I don't) as it diffuses the situation.

This is how the conservation when..

Child crying "I have hut my leg..." (It wasn't that bad )

Me attempting to diffuse situation " Shall I chop it off then..."

Child wailing a lot louder "No that will hurt EVEN more "

Me.."It's a joke.."





So I gave up and just sent them to First aid where they probably had the same conversation all over again with another teaching assistant.
