The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

You’re too pretty…

In Australia, we have a van, called ‘Life Education’. It promotes healthy living and educates all children (younger children more subtly) about drug use and its dangers. The younger children engage with a giraffe named Harold. The van is AWESOME and I loved visiting when I was a kid.

The visit can bring up feelings of worry and concern as it discusses smoking and how bad it is for you. Children who have parents who smoke usually want to talk about this after the visit.

A child asked me,

“Have you ever smoked, Miss Rainbow?”

Before I could tell them that no, never have I smoked a cigarette, I was told, 

“No, you’re too pretty to smoke.”

And that was that!
