Parent (in the middle of our presentation on curriculum and expectations): “1.5 hours of homework a night?! For a NINE year old? Don’t you think that’s excessive?”
Me: “No. Not at all.”
Yes. Obviously. Jesus Christ.
But don’t grill me in a formal setting in front of all the other parents regarding a school policy you know I have no control over. You want my real opinion? Buy me a beer first. Or make a subtle snide remark at Christmas as you slip me $100.
Extra homework for YOUR kid.
