When a kid learns to read well the whole world is their oyster – which means that when you’re stopped at red lights you get into conversations like this:
“Mama, what’s a gentleman’s club? Am I a gentleman? Can I go there?”
“Gentlemen don’t actually go to those places; because you’re a gentleman you won’t go there.”
And then we talked very vaguely about what happens there, and in more detail about respecting women and yourself.
I’m actually not sure I answered this one very well because I never bothered to figure out what an age-appropriate explanation of strip clubs was for my 6-year-old. That’s probably something I should’ve prepped for; seems like there are almost as many strip clubs as churches sometimes.
What’s the craziest question your kids have asked you at a stoplight?
How would you answer the strip club question?
