Reverence is more than just quietly sitting…

This has been making the rounds lately, and i liked it enough that i wanted to archive it here:

    Q: What do you call a Primary child who’s been gagged and handcuffed?
    A: Reverent.

Yeah, that seems to be a pretty good explanation of what “reverent” really means, no matter what they might say…

Pupil: would you punish me for something I didn't do?

Teacher: Of course not!

Pupil: Good, because I didn't do my homework.

:D x

I think you just stumbled upon exactly what my nearly 5 year old needs.

Side note: My older two always got so many compliments on how reverent and good they were in primary. Fritz is wiggly, but not bad so he gets compliments, too. And then there is Adrian. He often is on the floor. And they let him lay there because it's the quietest he'll be in primary generally. I'm considering apologizing in advance to the primary president in our new ward just for her having to deal with Adrian. I guess I should be glad that he is finally willing to go to primary with only a little forcing (note he's been in primary a year and a half now). They don't complain about him and insist he is darling, but whenever I am down there and glance in, he's either being tightly held by his teacher or he's laying on the floor. From all accounts, he is an angel and sits in his seat quietly and participates in his class. It's just the big room that overwhelms him.
