A few good captains
January 24, 2013

afewgoodcD: We didn’t know who the captains were for PE today. We usually have two, three or four.

Me: Oh. I suppose it depends on what games you play as to how many captains you need.

D: Huh?

Me: Different games need a different number of teams. So that would mean a different number of captains.

D: No. It depends whether you’ve been REALLY good – sometimes there’s four people that have been REALLY good, sometimes three, sometimes two, sometimes one – no, not one – two, three or four.
Aly was sitting out today and he said “I’m going to be captain.” I said, “I don’t think you are, because you have to sit out.”

Me: Why was he sitting out?

D: Because he’d done something extremely not good.

Being a helpful leader
October 29, 2012

D: What does that say?

Me: It says ‘Ethical Leadership Matters‘.

D: What does it mean?

Me: Do you know what being a leader is?

D: Yes, someone that’s in the lead – I don’t mean like a dog on the lead.

Me: OK, and ‘ethical’ means doing the right thing.

D: Yes – if you’re the leader you should be helpful, helping… and that’s all I can think of.
