A To Z - Kids And Kontests
Kids are awesome. They laugh, they run around, they want to learn everything (until they become teenagers, this is). They believe that things are possible, that somehow we can build something to fix a given problem. Kids have potential, sometimes untapped but there nonetheless. And if you tell a kid they can do something and support them in it, they will work their butts off to make it happen.
So right about now I can hear the objections. Yes, I understand that not all kids are like this, that many kids do not grow up with these same qualities. I don't consider that a fault of the kids. As far as I'm concerned, kids are like little sponges. They will suck in anything given to them. And if that's good stuff, the kid will grow up to be an awesome adult. If they don't get good stuff...well, refer to my short comment about parents.
Before I sign off, I want to mention a couple Kontests. Yes, I'm using a K on purpose. Just ignore the lack of spelling for the moment. Usually I'm a stickler, but this is a K day. If you haven't signed up for my 200 Followers contest, get over there asap. I've tried not to plague everyone with constant reminders, but I don't want anyone to miss out either. The Kontest ends midnight (MST) on Saturday, so don't wait too long.
There's another Kontest going on though. Cheree Smith is holding a Kontest for 300 Followers (way to go, Cheree). She's a fellow A To Z'er, and the prize she's offering is also really cool. Head on over to her blog to get the details.
For those of you who have kids, do you agree or disagree with me? For those of you who don't, sorry but your opinion doesn't count LOL. Oh okay, you can have an opinion. I'll even let you yell it at me in the comments :)
