Fearless Philosophical 10 Year Old Accurately Defines Wisdom

by Tricia
(Eastport, ME, USA)

My ten year old sometimes tends to view people and events from a unique perspective and I am constantly finding wisdom from his view of the world.

Usually, after he goes to bed, I participate on an online philosophy question and answer site for a little while before going to bed. One night, while reviewing the questions of the day concerning basic philosophical questions, I suddenly heard a loud THUMP from my son's bedroom.

Concerned, I decided to go check on him. My son is not a still sleeper and had obviously "fallen" out of bed, (or so I thought). Since the flooring in his room consists of ceramic tiling that can get cold at night, I began lifting him up to place him back in bed. When he gave a startled response, I told him that he had fallen out of bed and could not sleep on the floor.

He replied to me, "I didn't fall, I jumped!”

Another time, my son was telling me that while he was definitely smarter than his uncle, his aunt was equally intelligent to him. Curiously, I couldn't help myself from asking how he decided this.

He told me he was smarter than his uncle because his uncle "didn't even know the date Pearl Harbor was attacked"; However, he told me that his aunt was just as smart as he is "because she acts like a kid".

Apparently, while knowing important dates may make you sound smart, signs of intelligence also include acting like a kid.

Kids sure do have their own way of looking at things, don't they. That's funny and very cute! Maybe they're right and we'd be smarter if we all acted like kids more often, huh? Thanks for sharing!
