15 Inimitable Children That Speak Better Than Some Adults
Children make us really happy, but sometimes they do things that we have no idea how to react to. They can be funny, they can show their unusual views of the world, and they sometimes even tell detective stories. The website “Children Talk” has a huge collection of these stories and we collected the best ones for this article.
We at Bright Side had a lot of fun reading these stories and we really want to share some of them with you. The bonus will show you what optimism really looks like. And if you’ve had something like this happen to you, tell us in the comment section below.

A boy, who was about 6 years old, was having a conversation with his dad:
Dad: Don’t go into the puddle — your feet will get soaked. Look both ways, or a car might hit you. Don’t climb the fence, you might fall. Don’t jump off the deck, you’ll break your leg.
The boy: Dad, you are a coward! © Family
My child brings home a new toy car from kindergarten. I ask him:

Ann (4 years old) asks me:
— Have you found a job?

We went to the store and parked our car under a tree. While we were in the store, some birds who were hanging out in the tree left some “presents” on the roof and the hood of our car. Because of this, I had to go to the car wash. After washing it, my son looked at the car and said,
— So, the birds are going to look at the car and say, “We did all the poop and it was all for nothing!” © Panaramix
