View Full Version : The only child

04-26-2014, 11:16 AM
So I was the third last of the siblings, I had to fight for the old worn out Superman T-Shirt and fight to wear the new Bart Simpson T-Shirt. He was cool, let's leave it at that that.

The fact is is I had to fight for everything! 'One day when I have a kid, things will be different.'

So, years down the line things are a lil different, things are looking up, I've managed to find a girl strong enough to deal with my BS* and yes I have a son.

Anyways, to cut a long story short I have enrolled my one kiddo in private schooling, I am astounded that he knows all his Maths tables backwards.

I couldn't comprehend my parents divorce at age 9, how does a little mind this age grasp Maths?

Exposure to them, and practice.

Just buy him a Batman shirt and tell him to keep calm and keep studying.
