Sometimes as I walk around the park I find change. Usually fifty cents or so.
Yesterday my daughter was wandering around with me and saw me find a penny. She wanted it, so I handed it to her. I told her she could find money, too. So we walked around looking some more and I found another penny.
This gave her an idea. She told me that any money I found I should give to her, and she'd give me any money she found. I told her I thought it was better to just keep what we each found but she didn't like that idea.
The next penny I saw, I casually "pointed" at it with my toe without looking at it, and she "found it" and picked it up. I said "Yay! Now give it to me." She refused even though I reminded her of our deal. A minute later she found a quarter and a penny together. I told her she was still supposed to be giving me the money she found.
She didn't want to. So I said I'd just keep what I found, too.
Then I started finding more change than she was. Quickly she had a "new" idea: She would keep everything she found and I would give her everything I found.
I said I still thought it was better if we just each kept what we found. So, she complained a little at first, but that's what we ended up doing.
She wound up with 29 cents and I had 30.
Communism appeals to 5 year-olds (and those with similar intellects) until the reality of it hits home. Then it doesn't seem quite as appealing anymore.
