Conversation with a 6th grader

"Ms. Saunders, do you like me?"

As if I would ever say no to this question.  "Of course I like you."

"But do you like me as a friend?"

"No, no I don't."

"What????" he asks with a noticeable droop in his shoulders.

"I like you as a student.  I teach you, I support you, I care for you.  But I am NOT inviting you over to my house to 'hang' and watch tv or play video games."

"Oh!  I don't want to do that with you either!"

Case closed.
