Ester Maria Posted January 13, 2012 Share Posted January 13, 2012 If your child told you, "I don't think you've got much left to teach me, I think I've pretty much exhausted what you've got to offer to me [educationally]", how would you react? Let us assume that the child is 13-14 and that it was said calmly, in a matter of fact tone, during some trivial discussion on education. The situation is, of course, highly hypothetical and any similarities with real persons are purely coincidental. :lol: I know it is in the "job description" of this age group to know it all, but really, in that very moment, HOW does one react? Should one feel offended because it is something that, even if you think it, you do not say to a parent? Should one be angry? Sad? Paranoid that the child might be correct? Should one plot vengeance with a particularly nasty assignment so that one can have one's own "a-ha! gotcha!" moment in return? :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
