I am scared of children with scissors.
Reasons why can be found here.
Yesterday and the day before, I did an activity with sixth graders (age 11-12).
And I can tell you, I was so scared!
Kids love to play with scissors! They walk opening and closing the blades in front of them. They pretend to cut each others hair and clothes. They point them at each other and jab the air.
But it’s a “stupid” fear, so I have to keep quiet while I watch children cut paper too close to their fingers. And God forbid they come anywhere near me with them!
How childish! How immature! Why can’t you be afraid of heights like a normal person? What a lame fear.
You don’t think I wish I wasn’t scared?
