I've had it.
If one more person states that "Your kids get their smarts from their dad"....I'm going to yell.
Just because he's an engineer...passed everything with honors (and never had to study).....can figure out any problem by looking at it for a mere minute.....
Okay. I get it. Their dad is Smart.
Even brilliant...(in his own way;)
But do kids REALLY inherit the Smart gene?
Don't you think SMART can just be LEARNED?
(I AM NOT saying my kids are geniuses!!!!
We have struggled in many areas and sometimes I wonder Just how long a certain concept should take to grasp...)
But everything seems to come easy for the most part.
I have a daughter who can write incredibly well and passes her spelling tests most often- first time around.
One son who is so creative I have to go to him for ideas on plans I'm making.....
Another son catches on to everything the minute he is introduced to a new concept...
And one other son who is BEYOND me when it comes to Algebra.
(Or any type of math for that matter!)
(Did I ever mention it took me 6 semesters of math to attain my Math 30 credits?:(
So my question is:
Are kids born with Smart Cells
are they acquired/learned over time?
(Because (note).... I AM their teacher)
I do hope I'm contributing to more than
just the athletic side of things;)
Regardless of inherited or acquired
...I am happy for them.
I just wish a BIT of it had been passed on to me......
