Wrong! I know this to be a fact, because it seems that every parent considers his/her offspring to be smart, ahead of his/her peers, ready to start kindergarten prior to the age-rule, off the charts...yada, yada, yada.
With all the smart spawn, what's with all the stupidity in this world? Where is it coming from? How is this possible?
Whatever happened to being content and proud with a good child? Seldom do I hear a parent describing their child as "good." "Sweet" or "Loving."
Who cares how smart a child is? What does that have to do with anything? I think we could do with more love in this world, more compassion, and abundant faith in God.
Never once did I hear our parents describe us to others as "smart" or "gifted." I wonder...maybe it's because we were just dunces.
