Jack on Cell Phones

Age 11:

We were talking about our community pool and how Jack is old enough to ride his bike there with friends this summer. 

Me: You could basically text your friends and see if they want to meet you at the pool whenever. Do your friends have phones?

Jack: Only a few.  The rest are aspiring to get one.

Jack on Generations

Age 11:

We were discussing different generations and their names (Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millenials, etc.). 

Jack: I think my generation is lame. 
Me: Why do you say that?
Jack: We haven't  accomplished anything. 
Me: Yeah but you guys are too young to have done much of anything, yet. But I expect big things from your generation! 
Jack: Why?
Me: Because you all have grown up with amazing technology and are learning how to research solutions to problems and things like that. Once you all grow up, you will probably invent amazing things. 
Jack: I think the greatest generation will be the one that figures out world peace.

Jack on Needing Parents

Age 11:

Jay: Do you acknowledge the fact that you need parental guidance? 

Jack: Yeah I'm 11 so... Yeah, I need parental guidance. If I didn't, I'd have my own apartment and be working a job.
