I dislike to deceive my children. It can be that I ever was deceived by my parents when I was little. I remember a quarrel with a seven-year-old neighbor who didn't believe in the plot and called me on the evidence. Confidently I answered:
" well, You have seen him on tv.
He pointed out that the plot was cartoon and I rushed home to mother to hear if there really was a santa claus.
– If you don't believe in santa, you get no christmas gifts, " mum said, and it cemented my tomtetro in several years to come.
, I think. Therefore, my children haven't had faith in neither the plot or tandfén. I've talked about them, but always in such a way so that it has emerged clearly that it is a game.
My wife has no such limitations, so after she and her cousin had designed the instructions on a piece of paper, dirty it down with coffee, burnt paper edges, and skrynklat it together, she had no qualms about proclaiming for the children and kusinbarnen that she had found an ancient treasure map.
Since the kids are used to adults telling the truth and they believe in this. The remarkable instructions were followed, and see, and behold, in a crevice, under a shrubbery, surprisingly close to the house, found a genuine small chest crammed with necklaces, rings, hair clips and other things.
the Loot was divided up between the children, and they talked long about this.
tell the children that all they had found was purchased at the local flea market the day before. The children were also not so old that they were thinking of the plastic pieces in the jewelry that was claimed to come from the viking age.
You could say that my wife had the situation under control until that one of the parents visited the children's school at such a time when we adults have to tell you what we're working with and how we do it.
the Parent in question worked at a museum. I have just the child's version of what took place. The topic of ancient finds came up with the museiföräldern, whereupon my child put up his hand and asked what to do if you find a treasure on the plot.
"Yes, then you have to submit it to a museum," said the parent.
– We found a jättegammal tax on our land, " said the child. It was the necklaces and rings and hair clips. Mom said we could keep it.
