It's arts and craft time now kiddies!

I dunno, I think this is kinda sweet. The teacher wants to be buried in something that was made by people she cares about. That's got to be better than a "mass produced" corpse box.

It's very unusual - but I think it's good that she has been so open and honest with the children about such a difficult subject. I think we screw them up even more by dealing with death in a patronizing way. Perhaps they'll be less frightened when someone close to them dies in the future.

i think it's sweet...and i wish i had wood shop in elementary school...damn

She says: 'Life and death belong together. The children realised that when I explained it to them. I didn't want to be morbid about it, I wanted them to help me.'

This is why soo many of us fear death. If only we had more people like this teacher to break us from that fear.

What a great idea. Coffins are expensive, why not get one with free child labour?

Did anyone catch the "U-boat captain" line?

It would be creepy if it was made of paper or somethin. But since it is serious it is a nice thing to do.

Hum, they still say UBoat in the UK?
Intresting.

hmmm 0.o

This is so weird.

"Some of the children play with it, climbing into it and pretending to be U-boat captains."

Interesting...anyways, I thought it was a nice story.

I think it's a great, healthy way to teach young children about death.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 2/14/07 - 4:34:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
o. . . . k.
slightly strange.
Nice idea.
Certainly a story to tell when you get older.

This one time? In wood shop? We built a coffin for a dying teacher? And sometimes we'd climb inside and pretend we're in a submarine? But then we couldn't do that anymore 'cause the teacher died!

The Dutch are really a disturbed people.

"Johnny what did you do in school today?"

"I made a coffin for my teacher! She is going to die!" He says with a childish grin.

"Wha.. what did you say!?"

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 2/14/07 - 5:15:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
'she asked the arts and crafts teacher to build a casket for her.'

That's a sweet story & she's clever.

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 2/14/07 - 6:02:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
that's just morbid.... not sweet

didnt read any post here cause i didnt want to.


i think its very good to teach children about death rather then telling them something along the lines of the dead person "went away".

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 2/14/07 - 7:31:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think the title of this story alone was enough to scare me
