Ready for School

Man, I like this.  I agree with all of it.  Except for maybe the toilet and comedy one.

From I Miss You When I Blink:

Q: If something is hard to do, is that a reason not to do it?
A: Nope. That’s a reason to be extra proud after we’ve done it.

Q: What if we’re afraid we won’t be good at something?

A: Don't think about being good at it. Think of it as trying something new.

Q: Do we choose to do something or not do something because we worry people will talk about us?

A: No. People will always talk. We can at least give them something interesting to talk about.

Q: Do we have to be the best at everything?

A: Nope.

Q: Do we have to do our best at everything?
A: Yes. Always.

Q: Even math?
A: Even math.

Q: Do we ever do something that will hurt someone else?
A: No.

Q: Do we ever take or break something belonging to someone else?

A: No.

Q: If we do, by accident or on purpose, harm someone else’s body, feelings, or property, what’s the first and most important thing to say?
A: I’m sorry.

Q: What do we do if we see someone who has nobody to play with, sit with, or talk to?
A: Play with them. Sit with them. Talk to them.

Q: What do we say to every teacher and staff person we see?

A: Thank you.

Q: Do we ever make fun of our own sibling at school?

A: No. Save that for home. Just kidding.

Q: Do we tell the truth?
A: Yes.

Q: Do we do anything on purpose that could result in our own serious injury?
A: No.

Q: Does every single thing that pops into our head need to be said out loud at the moment we think it?

A: Dude, seriously. No.

Q: Do we say or do something just because we heard it on TV, saw it on YouTube, or read it in a book?
A: No. This is real life.

Q: What about cutting holes in our school clothes with scissors like that time ONE OF YOU CAME HOME WITHOUT THE LEGS OF YOUR PANTS -- is that a good idea?
A: No.

Q: Do we do anything AT ALL involving comedy and a toilet?
A: No.
