whizbangthedirtfarmer: Vangor: As someone who has taught fourth graders to write, doubting the authenticity of this letter; looks like an adult's attempt to write like a child.

As someone who taught third grades to write, I agree, or it could be a really advanced kid.


my guess would be the latter... I would assume this muslin kid is either an American Muslim or one who is educated well enough to know English in which case these kids are usually far more advance than the typical 'American' 3rd grader.

H31N0US: gja: Maybe we can learn something from our children.

Don't bother. They will grow up to be sociopaths, fundamentalists, murderers, rapists and so on. Lord of the Flies and all that.


That's a very bleak outlook you have there my fellow Farker.
I can only speak for my daughter, but she will be none of that.
I am hoping (won't say praying 'cause all the anti-god etc.. on Fark and such) that there are more like her than like what you are describing.

As someone who has never taught any grade I was baffled that a fourth grader still believed in Santa. Is that not unusual? When does the believing tend to stop?

Muslim women don't wear hajib in the home.

For me it was around fourth grade. I stumbled onto hidden packages 'from santa' in the back of my dad's car.

Oh, they start to become a little jaded in fifth grade and have generally dropped it by sixth.

And, the "say hi to Mrs. Claus" bit the end doesn't sound very childlike to me.

I'd love to see some terrorists go after the Father Christmases as seen in 'Rare Exports'.
