An Elementary Perspective: Get a Clue

Board games teach valuable lessons in safety.

My daughter Julia came to live with me two years ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my nine-year-old clone, but that is exactly what I find I am doing with Julia. Through our judo and soccer practices, reading, writing and arithmetic, Girl Scouts, and Japanese language classes, we occasionally have a conversation that connects us both in a sometimes deep and usually humorous way. Hopefully, you will be as entertained as we are.


Get a Clue

Julia received the board game Clue for Christmas and has been playing the game nightly.  Daddy has come to her bedroom to check on her getting ready for bed and finds her in her room ready but the lights are on in both her bedroom and the bathroom.

Daddy:  Julia, why is the bathroom light on?


Julia:  I’m scared.    

Daddy:  Scared?  You’re scared of what?

Julia:  You know, someone might kill me with a candlestick or something.
