Oh dear. The voice of a child directing air traffic in the tower. Speaking to pilots and giving instructions. Oh dear. Did he do a fine job? Wasn't his parent right there? That is not the issue. The issue is that a child was allowed to give instructions in an air traffic control tower.
Let me ask you this. What if your doctor wanted to let their kid see how a pap test was done? How about that lump on your breast. How about surgery? Here, hold this clamp.
I took my eldest son to work with me before, years ago when he was about 6 years old, at our own company. He sat on the floor and put invoices in numerical order. He was really good at it. I know this because I had to check them all of course. Worst case scenario...one was out of order and we would have had to look for it for a while.
My husband took our youngest son to work with him too. This is a standard grade 9 high school day. He knows what my husband does and didn't want to hang around with him so they put him to work in the shop and he lugged stuff around and cleaned up.
I think it is very poor judgment to have a child of such an obvious young age directing airplanes full of people around the sky telling them what runway to use etc.
What do you think?
