The main carer

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.”)
