So what's this post about? Well, my kids are now attending public school and my oldest is pretty darn bright when it comes to math. He does pre-algebra and he's only 11. That beats me by a long shot; I think my first pre-algebra class was as a freshman in college and even then, I had some tutors to help me pass the class.
The moment I was dreading finally arrived last week when my smart buddy asked for help with his math homework. I thought I would take a look, just to see if I actually could help, but alas, no. I had no idea how to do the problem myself, much less help him with it. So what did I do? I looked at him calmly and said, "Go ask your mother."
