Weirdest comment from my daughter

Canada
March 5, 2008 1:26am CST
I was so shocked to hear that another child actually told my daughter (who is extremely upset about this) that: Once you past the age of 5, you cannot have any more fun in life! OMG I had to quickly reassure her that no matter how old you are, you will always ALWAYS need to have fun in life! Do you think it's fun for mommy to come out and go sledding with you? You bet it is!

Well once I was watching a soccer game with my son who was about 10 at the time, and a player did something, and my son said, boy that old guy.. (the player must have been around 25) so I asked him, to you what's an old guy? And he thought it over and then he said, Man, anyone over 20 is real old. So I don't know maybe we just forget what it was when we were children and maybe the little girl really thinks anyone over 5 doesn't have fun. As you grow older your views keep changing. I for one used to think I wouldn't pass the 30 year mark and wouldn't want to anyway and now I'm 46 and having just as good a time as ever.

That is an odd, odd comment. I am sorry this happened to your daughter, just keep reassuring her how untrue that is.

really? and how old is the child who made such comment? it was really something, i can't imagine why the child was able to say such... he he and yes, of course you can have fun at any age... there is no age limit to being happy.

I think that is really strange that a kid would say something like that. I wonder who told her that and why anyone would tell a child that. I'm quite sure that since you talked to her about it, reassured her that it wasn't true and then told her how much fun you still have, your daughter will see for herself that what the other kid told her wasn't true.~D

oh wow... I wonder what makes that child thinks that they cant have fun after 5 yo? Could it be her (or his) parents that are saying that? True, the fun we have when we were 5 yo and when we were 15, 20 or 50 is different... and all the responsibilities we carry are also different. But everyone do needs to have fun in their life... otherwise there is no point in living :) your daughter is lucky that she has you to reassure her on how to still have fun in later age :)

Maybe you should ask her where she heard that from! I bet it was another kid, and i bet that kid is not treated very nice in their home.. that's sad.. Where else would your daughter get that idea from though.. That's a sad sad thing. We have to have fun all our lives, or else we turn into grumpy bitter old people with no friends except a million cats or dogs!! *giggles*

Hello dear friend. It is so surprising that a little kid around your daughter's age would say that there is no fun after five years old. You see, the kids nowadays are getting more mature than the age when we were kids. I guess that the little child means that there will be a lot of studying work after five or something similar to this? Kids nowadays. lol

Where do these people come up with this? Maybe the kid heard an adult talking? I always thought the book title "Everything I know I learned in kindergarten" was kind of funny. Somebody needs to ask that kid who told her that and explain the facts of life.

Oh my... the girl who made that comment must have some issues in her life at a very young age... i wonder how she is being treated by her parents or other family members... and what made her say that comment... It is nice that you were able to assure your daughter that that is so not true... the fun is just about to start...
