Children are such wonderful souls. I taught first grade for 5 years. During my 1st year of teaching one of my students said, “Ms. Yeager, did you know my mother had sex with two guys?” I was shocked at her statement and asked why she would say something like that. Her response was “Because I have a twin brother!” I reminded her that she and her brother have the same father and she should probably talk to her mom more about it all…..that group of six-year-olds are now freshman in high school and have myspace pages that have blown my mind. It just helps me realize that we all were innocent once…..
