tiresome for children
always, forever, have to
explain to grown ups
Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours et toujours leur donner des explications.
Antoine de Saint-Exupèry in the ‘Le Petit Prince’ (1943).
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Jaxon was not happy that I could not understand that if he, Jaxon, could handle the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, he could easily handle the May River.
