It's nice to observe the usual childish activities from a distanceIt's good to see when children behave like children. I am saying this because nowadays I can see many children behaving so seriously that they forget they are still children. Their ways of talking, asking questions and most prominently their fearlessness is worth to notice. Upbringings play an important role that cannot be denied, sometimes children act in a certain way when among their peers.
It's very usual that when a group of children is there, you will find them indulging in banter. During this one may use certain words which the adults may find inappropriate. Though it's not any slang, children use them when they are among themselves and it is a usual practice. Now when they are saying such words if a known person comes in the middle, they feel ashamed.
Today there was a group of children mostly of standard five and six in a public bus returning from school. During their usual banter, one of them uttered one such word. He was laughing and sitting by the window. Another one was standing, though the bus was not at all crowded. A man, known to the one who was standing laughingly patted on his back and there was an eerie silence among the children. After watching this, I am reminded of a similar incident occurred during my student life. The basic nature of children cannot change and it's interesting to closely observe their activities.
