Unclear cleared

A little boy was doing his maths homework.He said to himself, “Two plus six, that son of a bitch is eight. Three plus four, that son of a bitch is seven….”

His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, “What are you doing?”

The little boy answered, “I’m doing my maths homework, Mom.
“And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?” the mother asked.

“Yes,” he answered.

Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, “What are you teaching my son in maths?”

The teacher replied, “Right now, we are learning addition.”

The mother asked, “And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?”

After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, “What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four.”

“Things are not always as they seem”

    Nice one.

    Ever thought of where the child would have picked up such language from? Most parents assume that everything the child learns, he learns at school. But I would say learning begins at home. Maybe we should all review the way we act or speak in front of children.

    Reminded me a quote

    “Children are not vessels to be filled, but a lamp which has to be lit”

    The mind of a child is like a sponge, it absorbs everything from all kinds of environment. But the challenge is for parents to teach them what to absorb and what not to.
