Educating children is such a horrible thing. There are thousand mistakes to do, thousand good advices to follow, thousand weird ideas your children come up with. And there’s a whole industry trying to make your children getting nuts. They’d better use this perfume, play that game, listen to those boy bands and eat much fast food.
It’s not only that you have to educate someone, you also have to fight against unresponsable powers out there. And these powers sometimes are even combined. It’s a tricky thing to sort that all out.
FrauElise is one of those people that are bothered with education. Last saturday she decided to watch german television. The german version of Pop Idol, “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”, was shown. She is well aware of the danger that comes along with this show. What if her children want to try to become a pop star?
She’s routined enough to come up with an educational strategy immediately:
(“Well, if my children want to participate in that show one day, they do not only get a “No”, they also get a clip round the ear right away.”)
