Ask Amma

Make believe

My daughter wants me to call up the magician who performed at her birthday and ask if he can transform her into a fairy. She can’t see why I won’t even ask

– mom of a 6 year old in Chennai.

So why won’t you? As a magician he must have fielded such a question before? Else you could take the question and also transform her into a fairy (or let her transform you.)

Chennai mom responds:
I had of course to deal with the question. We talked a little about fantasy and fiction. She didn’t seem too convinced!

Amma asks:
Convinced of what?

Amma asks Readers – have you had to "break the news" about fantasy and fiction? Tell us how you did it and why.
