This spring, in partnership with the public-ethics program Winning Words, we interviewed a group of second-graders at an elementary school on the South Side of Chicago about what they think it means to be a kid. The exchanges below have been lightly edited and condensed.

What’s the best part of being a kid?

You don’t have to do a lot of work.

And what do you like to do?

I like to just play soccer.

Are there things that you think your parents or teachers can learn from you?

Yeah, but I don’t really know anything right now. Because I used to be into everything but I just watched my first soccer game in 2014 and I was into it and now I just like soccer so much that I don’t know what I’m going to do.
