My seven-year-old asked me today, "Eema, can you guess what my favorite TV show is?"
I went through a brief roster of what I know he watches and likes, and then I suggested, "Tom & Jerry?"
I was met with a big smile. "How did you know?"
"I guessed." And then I went on to tell him that the show was popular when I was a kid, too, and that I used to watch the show as well.
But I didn't want to tell him the truth that is circulating these days.
Robert Avrech posted about this last week and I was peeved then upon reading the entry. Dare I tell my child what some (crazy) people believe?
