Time According To My 7 Year Old….

The time continuum.  I have been wrestling with just this concept this morning.Praise your child constructively

And I am afraid that I have not been winning….

You see, when I ask my 7YearOld to set the timer on for 30 minutes he immediately sets it to 31 minutes.

“But Mummy, when you put it on for 30 minutes, it immediately goes to 29!”  “It’s not fair!  I’m missing out on my time!”

Well, I’ve used diagrams, dried peas and a Thomas the Tank Engine clock to try and demonstrate the concept of seconds and minutes.

No.  Nothing works. 7YearOld is still convinced that Mummy is trying to cheat him  out on some of his time.

Anybody have any ideas?
