How I Helped Improve Kid’s Grades (limerick)

Updated on July 19, 2013

Kid’s grades rose from F to a B

They pinned this improvement on me

Instead of reviewing

The homework they’re doing

I went back to wooing T. V.

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

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

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

      I guarantee your children's marks will instantly improve.

      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?
