Ha ha! I'd be lying if I said I couldn't relate... at least just a little :D

This one sounded awesome on the ears too!

Hahaha! Perhaps that is true of parents and kids today? My son argues with me if I try to show him how to do a math problem because that "isn't the way the teacher does it." But sometimes I just don't understand the new methods to attempt doing a math problem that way. haha Maybe ignorance really is bliss?

By all means, Martin, go back to your TV-watching groove.

I guarantee your children's marks will instantly improve.

That's funny. I have actually heard in some parental cases, this is better.

Today's teaching methods are so different from when I was in school. It's a wonder the kids learn anything at all!
