Today, I was actually criticized for giving my kids scientific answers to their questions, instead of dumb downed fairytales. Gotta love the public school system, right? FML

So in the private system do they get dumbed down stories, instead of the dumb downed ones in the public?

Good for you. I also give my kids real answers and info they need for life.

Hah! Fuckin' public schools with their round Earth and evolution bullshit! Our science textbook is the one written by the Man Upstairs, right?

Sarcasm? honestly can't tell. Does this mean you are bad at it or good at it? or is it just me? I mean in the case that you were being sarcastic

Yes, sarcasm.

Ohhh the irony

I was going to point that out.Maybe he is not a native english speaker but so an I.

I would be far more critical of the private school system.

Well keep at it. They're going to hate my family once our kiddo starts school. Her dad is still bitter about Santa and wants to teach her from the get go that he doesn't exist. Her classmates are going to just LOVE it 🙃

I never had the Santa and easter bunny is real BS and my neighbor hated me when I told her kids (I was like 12yo so cut me some slack), I also broke it to my classmates at school. Which also went over like a lead balloon.

Oh man, I forgot all about the easter bunny. It creeped me out as a kid. Instead of a tooth fairy, we have a tooth mouse where I'm from. The little dude collects all the good teeth to build a tiny home with for him and his family. A bit more believable for a kid so I was really sad when I found out about that one being shite. Looking back now, a house built out of teeth is also creepy and yuck 🤮
