If my kid's only six and you ask me with a straight face how I can possibly teach him what he'd learn in school, please understand that you're calling me an idiot. Don't act shocked if I decide to respond in kind.Amen, sister!
Yes--I got a comment like that not too long ago. Well-intentioned even. My kid is technically (according to the government officials who would love to have him) in Kindergarten.
I have above average intelligence, nearly 37 years of life experience (ack!), a Bachelor's Degree, a Master's Degree, I've started a couple businesses here and there, I know how to read and think critically, and I have a freaking TON of common sense.
We'll be okay for a while. Honest. :o)
