I read this article and how teachers call their students "my kids".
Well I'm obviously an OT working in elementary schools and not a teacher, but same story. I ALWAYS refer to them as "my kids" ie "Oh my kids would love this" or "I am buying this for my kids" ....that's how I see them. Sometimes I forget what that sounds like to a stranger and then they ask, oh, how old are your kids? (assuming I am the mom). Then I am like Oh, no, sorry, I mean the kids I work with.
But to me? They're just my kids. :)
