Kids are unpredictable, and so is their imagination.
Recently I found out their interesting methods of putting their worries away ...
My 11-year old artistic daughter said,"Usually when I close my eyes, I'll see a WALL with my PROBLEMS written on it. (Eg: PIANO EXAM"). So, I'd imagine myself wearing a very Beautiful dress, walking into a shop that sells colorful paint. I'll choose my favorite color - Lavender. I'd then started painting & covering those words on the wall. Before I finished painting, I'll doze off already."
(No wonder her teachers complained she daydreams a lot)
My 8-year old goal oriented daughter has a different way. She'd imagine her teacher holding an exam paper in hand, calling out her student code and NAME. She'll then see a 100% on that paper. That would satisfy her and put her to sleep.
PLUS...sometimes she'll imagine a TAEKWONDO master helping her to "B R E A K a lot of bricks of problems"
( I know she's very persistent and goal-oriented, but I'm truly surprised by her imagination)
Now it's my 13-year old gun-obssessed son's turn. He said he'll imagine himself shooting a lot of balloons with a gun. I'm curious and asked him whether are those balloons colorful??? He replied,"NO. Those balloons have no color."
(Phew... at least he's shooting balloons and not "human")
Even so, their daddy's imagination/dream is still the "wildest", if not the best. This 90kg man would transform himself into a ** feather **.... floating in the air...........so light & carefree............. drifting him into slumberland...z z z z z z z
In short, there's no dream too BIG, or too small.
So keep dreaming!
