8 year old proudly crooning to siblings: “I don’t like math.”
Mom: “But you are good at math. It is one of your better subjects.”
8 year old insisted: “I still don’t like math.”
Mom: “Well then, no more math for you (think Soup Nazi here). You are done with math.” Of course I was joking, but my son didn’t know that.
8 year old half-shocked and half-confused meekly said: “But what about my job?” He wants to work in a computer science field when he grows up and knows math skills are important for that.
Mom: I shrugged.
8 year old speaking a little louder now said: “Well, I do like math a little.”
Things may not always be as they seem.
