The Wild Ones

Some kids are just mischievous.

Wild.

Busy.

Exasperating.

They see a puddle and have to jump in it.

A glass of water and have to dump it.

A counter and have to climb it.

They see a toy and immediately want to know how it works. How it’s wired. Taking it apart becomes vital. What’s it made of they think.

They see mail and need to know what’s inside. A package becomes a possibility. It could be a Nerf gun or a monster truck or ice cream. They must know.

A box becomes a fort. A blanket becomes a cape.

Their brains are wired differently.

Their jeans have holes in them.

Knees have scrapes.

Shoes are worn out.

They can’t sit still. Their moms and dads never sit down.

Because a couch is for jumping.

A counter for climbing.

Pillows for throwing.

Scissors. Markers.

Water. They always find water.

Some kids are just wild.

Born to be the builders, the mess makers, the taker aparters.

There is no use fighting it. These wild ones.

Just foster their strengths. Their ambitions.

And keep them safe until they can run free.

That’s the hope. Encourage.

And keep them alive.
