Hi all Shellawaya,
My name is Islam Ayman, i'm an 11 year old student at Future Language Schools, i'm writing to you now from my mother's email because i don't have my own.
I did not like that all shellawaya and everybody even on TV to blame Mrs. Bonita Zaki the person who put the exam for 2nd prep, which was ?imagine that you are a thief?. Not because she works in my school. I want to ask all of you a question: how can a kid starts his life like a man without knowing what is happening around him?.
The kid must know everything bad or good, so he can know the difference and chose and what is happening around him. An investigator when he investigate a robbery he imagine himself the thief and think like he thinks or he will not know how he robed a bank or else. So is that investigator going to be a thief because he imagined himself a thief???
For example, I remember once they asked us to imagine that you are a pair of shoes. Were they ordering us to be shoes or just imagining or to feel how life would be if I am a shoe walking in mud, and knowing how shoes are something useful protecting our feet. By the way Mom also was angry when I had this compassion, I wonder why? And she said to me ?I hope you know the value of the shoes and you will not damage them?. LOL
Now I?ve said all what I want from my opinion, imagining is not bad at all but it is like dreaming, it makes you have ideas and be creative not like just studying a book.
Dear all shellawaya I was surprised from my kid opinion so,I insist to share it with you all I guess this prove that we look to things from our ?adult? point of view and kids have another point of view, or at least some of them..)))
