Children are the future…

… or so I am told. I’m a third year psychology student with career aspirations of joining the FBI’s criminal profiling program. But in many classes included in the psychology paradigm, I need to learn about psychology of childhood and adolescence, just as any good psychologist should.

My counseling class requires me to participate in a counseling program outside of the school. My professor stressed the importance of working outside of our comfort zone, and so, knowing the type of psychology that I take interest in and that I frequently deal with undesirable people such as the type mentioned two updates ago, she suggested that I pull a complete 180 and join an educational counseling group in a kindergarten classroom. Joy.

My history with children, especially those of the small variety, is not a sunny one. My presence seems to make children grow quiet and withdrawn, and I have been known to make babies cry by looking at them. Probably because I look like a stone Golem they would like to climb on until they see me move. And so next week I get to toss the dice into a ring of six-year-olds, and hope that I come out with adequate notes for my assignment, and as few lawsuits from parents over emotional trauma as possible. Because it’s true- children are the future. Insofar as most are cruel, violent, and short.
