The mother is planning a sabbatical from her work. She was planning to take a long leave from the job, ride it out for next few months before deciding on the next stages of her career. She decided to break this news to her daughter.
Mother: *adopting a serious tone* Mom is going to stop working.
Daughter: *listening with blank expression*
Mother: *hides her smile and proceeds to drop the bombshell* Now, we have to be careful about what we buy and how we spend money.
Daughter: *takes a few moments to think and then* But why are they making you do it?
Mother: *confused* they?
Daughter: Yes, they. Your office firing you?
Mother: *a bit unsteady now* Why would they want to fire me?
Daughter: *with all innocence* Probably, you might have checked some sites on the Internet which you should not have and your computer would have crashed!
I am glad kids know there are things that shouldn't be done on the Internet. I am not sure who is teaching them. I was glad initially because this is the basic thing a kid should be taught. Then, reality sank in. When has restrictions stopped any of us?
