Gotta love them kids

After being verbally harassed by the creator to post, I've decided to share my best conversation I've had with my kids this year. Mind you, not a single adult that I meet believes that I'm out of high school, let alone teach them yet in spite of my boyish looks, all my students believe I have a wife and several kids (neither which are true...yet).

Student A: Do you want to have kids?
Me: Uh...
Student B: No, Mr. Kwok don't have kids. He sees us and dont wanna have kids no more.

Student B later on: The only reason why I'd want to have kids is so I can whoop them.

Needless to say, I could not stop laughing. Made me also rethink if I do want to have kids and whether I'd whoop them...

I suggest you continue doing this. I lied about my age at school for years (and wore a tie lest the cafeteria ladies charge me student prices). I'm old enough now that I don't do that much anymore, but I often had fun with it (including telling other periods different numbers).

You can also just never answer the question and just shake your head sadly when they say over 40 and get all mock offended.

Just don't feed it too much; it's mainly happening for two reasons:
1. They are curious about you.
2. They are trying and testing to get you out of the teaching flow.
