6: The age of the Journalist

I like to refer to age 6 as the age of the Journalist.  My students could recite to you in dry monotone (but in a heartbeat) what I call, the "5 Ws and an H" of journalism: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How.  I find that VERY appropriate to my daughter these days.  Allow me to illustrate my point: 

"WHAT are you doing?!?"
"WHY would you do this?!?"
"WHO is going to help me clean up this mess?!?"
"HOW did you think this would end?!?"
"WHEN are you going to learn?!?"
"WHERE on earth did you come up with that idea?!?"

I rest my case...
