As a parent, I fully believe that I need to take an active role in my child’s education. I am committed to helping Torin succeed in kindergarten, and I will encourage her and help her as much as I can. HOWEVER. Today she came home and told me she needed to practice what she learned. (Great, I’m thinking I’ll help her practice her writing or spelling words or math facts…) She proceeded to the rug in the living room and started practicing her sit-ups and jumping jacks that she learned in P.E.
Y’all. Let me tell you something right now. Mama doesn’t do sit-ups. Or jumping jacks.
I’ll take calculus, American government, science, reading, even physics, but NOT P.E. The girl is on her own with that one.
