When my son asked why those things were standing around everywhere (he meant wind turbines), I said to him, "Kid, surely you know that the earth revolves. Those are propellers, like on an airplane, that makes the earth turn beautifully". Two weeks later when the teachers asked if anyone knew what these wind turbines do, my son was the only one to put his hand up and was therefore euphoric. His answer triggered laughter from the teacher and classmates. I think they are still taking the piss up to this moment. Third grade can be really quite cruel. I am so sorry, I will never again talk such rubbish to a child.
