Child reluctant to go to school? Try setting it (the school) on fire. Big trucks, sirens and flashing lights capture a child’s interest 9 times out of 10.
There were a couple firetrucks outside the kindergarten next door to Gamma’s school, which is about 100 feet up the street from our house, this morning. On a normal day, she likes to go to school; today, she ran there in her nightgown before breakfast to see what was going on and came home shouting the news.
