Listening to a child speak can be a fascinating encounter. They tend to express whatever comes to their mind with complete honesty and openness. Their words hold no filter, and it doesn’t matter what they are discussing; they simply speak their thoughts, often catching us off guard with their candidness. These delightful and unfiltered responses from children are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and remind us why we cherish them so deeply.
1.During an observation in her kindergarten classroom, a Teacher was going around, examining the children’s drawings. When she reached a little girl who was engrossed in her artwork, the teacher ask about what she was drawing.
The girl confidently responded, “I’m drawing a picture of God.”
Surprised by the response, the teacher hesitated and remarked, “But no one knows what God looks like.”
Unfazed and focused on her drawing, the girl quickly replied, “They will in a minute.”
2.While conversing with her teacher about whales, a young girl was told that it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human due to its small throat despite being a massive mammal.
In response, the little girl mentioned the story of Jonah being swallowed by a whale.
The teacher, feeling irritated, emphasized once again that it was not feasible for a whale to swallow a human.
Unfazed, the little girl confidently said, “When I get to heaven, I will ask Jonah.”
Curious, the teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”
The girl replied with a hint of humor, “Then you can ask him.”
3.During a Sunday school session, a teacher was talking about the Ten Commandments with a group of five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment about honoring one’s parents, the teacher inquired, “Is there a commandment that guides us on how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Immediately, a young boy (the eldest sibling in his family) responded with a quick wit, saying, “Thou shall not kill.”
4.One day, a young girl sat observing her mother doing the dishes at the kitchen sink. Suddenly, she noticed a few strands of white hair among her mother’s brunette locks. Curiously, she asked her mother, “Why do you have some white hairs, Mom?” Her mother answered, “Well, every time you do something wrong that makes me sad or upset, one of my hairs turns white.”
Pondering over this explanation, the little girl paused for a moment and then humorously remarked, “Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?”
5.During a lesson on blood circulation, the teacher attempted to clarify the concept to the students. He said, “Imagine if I stood on my head, the blood would rush into it, and my face would turn red.”
The class acknowledged, “Yes, sir.”
The teacher continued, “So, why doesn’t the blood run into my feet when I’m standing upright?”
Quick-witted Bobby replied with a laugh, “Because your feet aren’t empty!”
6.In a Christian school cafeteria, children were queuing up for lunch. A stack of apples was placed at the beginning of the table, accompanied by a note that said, “Take only one, God is watching.
Further down the line, there was a sizable pile of chocolate chip cookies. One clever little boy decided to leave his own note near the cookies, which said, “Take all you want, God is watching the apples.”
