Kids. Such know-it-alls, right? Always thinking they have all the answers. I mean, by the time they're 6 years old, it's like Mom doesn't know anything about anything, right? Well ... right. Sometimes, at least, kids really DO know more than we know, or are willing to accept. That's what Illinois mom Lisa Hunter discovered recently, anyway. When her family heard local tornado sirens blaring, her 6-year-old son Brevin insisted they drop everything and head downstairs to the basement, like his teacher told him: "Please, Mom. This is what they teach us in school. When you hear the siren, you need to go somewhere safe," he said. But when Lisa looked out the window, the skies looked pretty clear to her -- the sirens were probably just a drill, she said. No need to go down to the basement.
But Brevin insisted -- and it's a good thing, too.
