I ask: “Kirsten, what is this? Did you cut your hair?” Kirsten’s rapid response, “Miss Emily did it.” Me: “Miss Emily cut your hair?” K: “Yes.” Me: “Did Miss Emily cut your hair or did Kirsten do it?” (eliminating her ‘just-select-the-last-item’ default response). K: “Miss Emily cut it.”
Incredulous, I asked for clarification a couple more times and Kirsten stuck to her story. No signs of deception. And she NEVER lied! Her teacher must have cut her hair. Not that I’m upset. I mean, if her amazing teacher wants to work hair maintenance into the curriculum, who am I to question?
