Ideal Critic

Kids will be honest with you when adults won't


  1. Indeed! I've learned more from children than from adults.

  2. Wine and children produce the truth. And headache.

    1. Yeah, they're pretty great.

  4. When I lived in the USA there was a Finnish teacher who had learned her English in school like most of us. However, her 4-year-old learned it in kindergarten like a first language, and she kept complaining about her mother's stupid English accent all the time.

  5. Heh, this reminds me of a half-Japanese Australian first grader who recently visited our (rural Japanese) elementary school. He kept complaining how his mum couldn't say "orange" properly, and when his teacher and classmates tried to say it, he told them that they couldn't say it either. It basically looked like the second panel, except they were just trying to say the word "orange"... (The teacher's actually perfectly understandable, but she has a Japanese accent instead of an Australian one, for obvious reasons. I then had to convince her that I wasn't just being the adult in the first panel, and her pronunciation was actually fine).

  6. This is true only until certain and not so high level of fluency

  7. damn right. I'm eleven and I often let my dad, who is almost fluent in hebrew, know when he's wrong.
