I haven't figured this out yet . . .

Wild Child

Children are wild. I don’t mean just out of control, too much energy that they’re crazy kind of wild, but wild. Like George of the Jungle or Tarzan. Think about it. They’re certainly not civilized.

Here are ten examples I could think of:

1. They’re willing to eat anything they find on the ground.

2. They’re unkempt.

3. They have a complete and utter disregard for the use of a toilet or soap and water.

4. They climb on things that aren’t meant to be climbed on (i.e. a stranger’s back, a large piece of furniture, etc.).

5. They play on “Jungle Gyms.”

6. They’re prone to violent and sudden outbursts.

7. They make strange noises to communicate with each other.

8. They’re unconcerned with the proper use of utensils.

9. The term, “indoor voice,” means nothing to them.

10. Their day starts when the sun comes up, regardless of what time it is, whether or not it’s the weekend, or in spite of what kind of night you had previously.

The list could go on and on, I’m sure. What wild behavior am I missing?

    They have no problem at all making huge messes and then walking (or crawling!) away. Lol Great list!

      Thanks, that’s another great one. They do have a complete lack of regard for cleaning up anything.
