Quality childcare in a
welcoming & supportive environment

Like, totally the coolest thing EV-ERR!

By weeziepops - 12 July 2010 11

I was walking The Stafford last evening when I came across a group of Youths.  For some reason, their idea of How To Spend A Sunday Night was to gather at the local high school tennis courts in sub-zero temperatures, glued to a single glowing i-phone screen as the digits of one of the party flew across the screen in what must have been some sort of triple-jointed arrangement. 

My inclination was to keep walking but The Stafford, being a high tech kind of dog, wanted to find out more.  Now, the Stafford isn’t all that socially adept so I discouraged this lest he decide to cock an inappropriate leg near anyone’s designer ugg boots.  I am also somewhat intimidated by groups of people, Youths or otherwise, and wanted to continue on until my preferred personal space zone of 250m around could be reattained.  One of the Youths saw The Stafford and I and approached me at a scamper.  I tensed with suspicion. 

Grasping the i-phone in her hand, she held it out to show me what was, she claimed, The Coolest Thing Ever.  Justin Bieber?  Twilight?  A cunning ruse to lure me in and then try to nick my own i-phone? 

None of the above.  It was a photograph of her own dog – a new puppy which she was showing off with as much delight as any proud mum could have. 

What’s Your opinion?

This is a great lesson in not judging a book by the cover. I have a 19 year old daughter with bright pink hair. She and her friends have multiply piercings, tattoos and dress “alternatively”. They are mostly a great bunch of kids. Last Canberra show they freaked out a woman by following her and handing back her wallet after she had dropped it. The wallet had over $500 in it. When the kids were offered a reward, it was refused.

I was standing in a queue at Subway the other day and saw some girls dressed in fishnet stockings, bondage boots and assorted piercings. It was then that I realised how much my teens and her friends, who I also consider to be ‘mine’ have taught me. I wasn’t looking at these kids thinking how weird they looked, I was actually looking at them and thinking, “yeah, my girl would love that!” I hope I stay as educated as I am now.

brilliant story and a great lesson

I started to get all twitchy and tense when I began reading this story.

But what a lovely post it turned out to be! Thank-you.
