My 8 yr old son has taken an anti-adult stance when it comes to receiving any of his knowledge about things in this world. Case in point, one recent conversation last week.
Colin: Mom, did you know the sun rises in the west and sets in the east?
Me: No honey, that's backwards. It rises in the east and sets in the west.
Colin: Nooooo. It rises in the west, and sets in the east.
Me: No honey it doesn't.
Colin: MOM! I saw it!
Me: It may have seemed like it because sometimes when it sets the horizon gets orangey and pink which makes it look like its rising in the west. It's pretty huh?
Colin: But MOM, I SAW IT! ( said with righteous indignation)
Me: Honey, it's the law of nature that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Let's look it up on the internet. (looks up kid's science website) Look! See? It rises in the east and sets in the west. (said somewhat smugly)
Colin: (stone faced and quiet)(long pause)....What does the internet know anyway?
HA HA! I love that kid!
