Who doesn’t like watermelon? I love watermelon. Back in my country, I could find it easily whole year, and people will rather choose the seedless one. Here in Korea, we could get it during summer with better taste but with seed. As for me, I don’t care either, but my daughter used to hate the seed eventho we told her just to eat them. It came up into another work for me to remove every seed.
Yesterday, after cutting the watermelon cubes, my daughter came to me:
Tanya: ibu ibu (mommy) look at this…. (Grabbing a seed of watermelon, and eating it).
Me: woaa….finally you ate it. Now, why would you eat that?
Tanya: because sonsaengnim (teacher) told me to…
Me: really… Why? What did sonsaengnim say?
Tanya: she said, it will make me healthy…. (Grabbing some cubes on her bowl)
Me: …. *teacher nailed
Guess at this age she believes her teacher better than us in so many ways. I don’t mind at all as long as in a good way.
Since these days children spend most of their time at school, their role would turn into the teachers. It is very important for teachers to have enough knowledge and experiences to be shared with children. I believe it is not an easy thing to do.
For all the teachers out there: RESPECT!
