Humans against the aliens

-A A +A

Kids surround me. Kids from ages 5 to 17 surround me.  I have some in my house and then a bunch at my workplace. Because their ages vary so much I have different behavioral expectations for each of them. I expect that my 5 year old will behave differently than my 15 year old- I expect this, doesn’t mean it is true.  It seems the older they get the higher the expectation.  
 It seems many of us who spend our day with kids, forget that they are kids.  We start expecting them to behave like adults. And sure, we want them to behave like proper civilized human beings.  But is that reasonable?  While driving in the car one time, my kids told me that adults were human. Well, yeah, I knew that.  But I had to ask, if we are human then what are kids?  They unanimously told me that kids are aliens.
 I think they are right.   They do things us adults would never do.  They put rubber snakes in the dog’s water dish.  They run around the house on all fours and growl like a cheetah.
