Lucia started pulling her pillow and blankets down from her bed to the floor, so she could plug the iPad into the wall socket. I said, you don’t need to plug it in, Lu, it has plenty of power. (It was at 87%, more than enough to watch a movie as she falls asleep.)
She insisted that the iPad needed to be charged. “That’s my opinion,” she said, as she plugged in the cord.
“It may be your opinion, Lu, but your opinion is wrong.”
“Well,” she said, snuggling into her makeshift bed on the floor, “it’s my opinion, so it’s right for me.”
And with that simple statement, my 6-year-old granddaughter elucidated all we need to know about the difficulty of trying to convince anybody of anything.
