Parents and Parenting

Sometimes I ask children about their parents to get to know them. Most of them say things like "my dad is as tall as you" or "I don't know how old my mom is." One time, I asked a 2nd grader about his mom, and he said, "she's really kimoi." The other kids around him and I were very surprised, and naturally, we asked him why. He explained, "she likes to pull down my pants and bite my butt."

That's really cute, isn't it?

Note: kimoi is short for kimochi warui, meaning bad feeling, or gross.
