Torturing Children  
I have had the lovely opportunity to torture a variety of children from one end of the kingdom to the other over the last few weeks, and there are some photos I actually rather like.

Here in Madison, talking to 5th and 6th graders at a local private school...

Out in Border Downs, playing "Godzilla Eithni" with some ankle weights...

And, I think my favorite, from CAM's Boar's Head with K's adorable little girl...

I got some horrified looks when I was asked who's child and I replied "my apprentice"... eventually, I realized I needed to specify that she was NOTilaifire's. :P

Current Mood: happyhappy

Remind me to watch you when you're taking care of munchkins.

I won't eat them... I promise! ;)

More that you seem to be really good with munchkins and I, despite not feeling at ease with them, feel that I should spawn. I'm not sure why.

Well, the tactics used with child torture of borrowed children are not really what you want to use with munchkins you intend to keep... Borrowed victims generally want to be teased and played with, some of the older ones are actually good to engage in conversation but the little ones just revel in "abuse" and attention from grownups-not-their-parents. Kidlets you want to keep or have significant responsibility for should get a strong set of rules and a friendly, but firm parent. They should be treated as intelligent short people - some things need to be made age appropriate, but in my experience, if you explain something sufficiently, even very young children can grasp (and retain) very advanced concepts.

Thank you. I'll probably still watch, but I appreciate the advice.
