Daniel has been asking me questions about the world wars. We’ve been reading the Chronicles of Narnia and the children in the story were evacuated to the country from London at the start of World War II. I’m pretty sure this is what sparked his interest.
I’ve had questions ranging from why did the wars start and why did they end; why were people fighting and that kind of thing. I explained that wars sometimes start because people are fighting over land. World War II began when Germany invaded Poland in 1939, wanting to take their land and allowing Germany to expand. Daniel asked me, “Why didn’t they just ask for the land?”. Elizabeth chimed in with, “They don’t have any manners and they don’t know how to share”.
Sometimes kids are smarter than adults 🙂

“They don’t have any manners and they don’t know how to share”.
Cutest answer ever on why wars start 🙂
Yes, I agree!
Very funny! Manners have gone to the dogs these days which must be why there are so many wars on at the moment. 🙂
You could well be right 🙂

Every child should be taught the true history of this – our one and only planet.
Yes, I agree. History is important. It helps us to avoid making the same mistakes and also to learn from those mistakes to make the world a better place.
Absolute classic 😀
