Do something exciting
July 19, 2013

dosomethingBoy: Today nobody at school listened to me and I REALLY needed to tell them something!

Mum: What did you need to tell them?

Boy: I can’t remember, but NOBODY would listen!

Mum: Well, it’s a hot day and sometimes people get a bit grumpy on hot days and might not want to listen as much.

Boy: But I listened to THEM!

Mum: Sometimes you’ll just have days when you feel like nobody’s listened, unfortunately it’s part of life. I have that sometimes – some days I feel like nobody’s listened to me at work. What do you think I should do then?

Boy: [Thinks for a while]… You should get them to stop thinking about the hot sun by doing something exciting.

Mum: What might that be?

Boy: You could ask them if they wanted something to eat. Or to drink.

Mum: Sounds like a good plan – they’d have to listen if their mouth was full!
