While out walking the dog in the forest my son and I were chatting about many random things as you do.
He then asked “if you could have a super power which one would it be and why”
The discussion got very interesting from that point, what would being super strong help you do? how about flying? what would spidermans tools let you do?
Then he said “what about reading minds?” This led to “wouldn’t it be great to know when someone was going to do something bad so you could stop it”; followed closely by the “just because you think it you may not actually do it” – how many people have you thought about killing? (several spring to my mind)
We then discussed what is bad/good and who says so and drifted out into cultural differences on the globe and how what is acceptable one place may not be acceptable in others.
All in all a good way to pass time while enjoying being out it the greenery, and a small step on the path to turning the lad into a useful member of society.
