Especially when they only see adults in one context and they make all sorts of assumptions about them. This week my students asked me the following questions:
+ Have you ever worn a dress?
+ Do you have a boyfriend? (Standard question; I was actually asked this twice this week by very different children.)
+ Do you like boys?
+ Who do you have a crush on?
+ What do you think is an inappropriate age to have a baby?
+ Wouldn’t she [a 13 year old mother] die because she’s too young to have a baby?
