We Don't Need No Education

I could never be a teacher as I don't have the patience, tried teaching my son maths this evening but he was stubborn and uninterested. The technique I attempted was questionable as basically I said we were going to sit in the car until he was ready to provide the answer.

It was a straight forward question, how many days from Thursday to the following Thursday. He wasn't interested and even though I was reciting the days of the week constantly he had made his decision. Eventually, expecting that we would be in for a long night we headed on to participate in an activity that interests him. Football, I'm sure that he could play from morning to night as it's very rare that he doesn't have a ball at his feet. I can tell he is missing his sister but she returns next week and then we're going to DisneyLand Paris which I'm really looking forward to!
