Comic Strip: Commitment


This month’s newsletter has gone out to the parents and the comic strip ‘The Craziest Things’, with it.  This month’s comic strip is centred on a celebration at the school. No it is not Groundhogs Day, the 100th day of school, the Winter Olympics, Family day or for the teacher’s, report cards going out.  Or is that just a relief, hmm.   The biggest is Valentines Day.

For me it has never been a big deal because my birthday falls in this month and to be honest that is always more important, well to me anyway. Yet for the children and a great many people it is a big deal.  A day when we can show how much we love the people in our lives.  For children they just go, Yuck!  So I say to them, Valentine’s Day is the day we show the people who are special to us how much we care for them.  Like their moms and dads, brothers and/or sisters, friends, etc.

However with the older children I can have a little fun with them.  These children are 10 or 11 years old and have just started the second decade of their lives called adolescence.  A confusing and trying time for everyone not just the children but also their parents, teachers and their peers.  Therefore I like to open the door a bit about to this new chapter in their lives. 

I though I’d have a little fun with the children and parents with this comic.   Many of the parents remember the little game they play with the flowers and pulling off the petals says, “he loves me, he loves me not”, over and over again.  But this time I would add a little 21st centaury psychological perspective that might come into play.  It just might make you think twice about this innocent little game.

 Hope you enjoy the latest Comic Strip: Commitment.
