So this evening, I took my kids for an "emergency trip " to Target (it got REALLY cold here, all of a sudden.... and of course all of last Winter's sweaters are too small for my kids...)
Anyway, my 6th grade son said something in the back seat to my daughter about PLAGIARISM.
My 5th grade daughter responded "What's plagiarism?"
He responded "Oh, it's REALLY bad. If you plagiarize, you STEAL someone's idea without giving them due credit and you could go to JAIL."
I just love being a mom and hearing this stuff.
So darn cute.
(Needless to say, I interjected and corrected the "inaccuracies" being put out there, but did let them know that plagiarism IS a big deal.... but the police wouldn't come screeching to a halt outside our door, sirens blaring and blue lights flashing....)
