Jackass Number 5 – Parents who tell you about their genius kids!

It’s not the parent’s fault if their child is a genius (actually, genetically speaking, it is!).

But really do you need to tell us about it…over and over? Let me help you out Jackass. No, you don’t. Honestly, we really don’t care about your child’s test scores.

This is because  (in case you haven’t noticed) in the last twenty years virtually every kid alive became some kind of “gifted” genius in their parents eyes. Well sorry to burst your bubble, but genius is extremely rare.  That’s why it’s special.  Just because your kid watches Baby Einstein doesn’t actually make them Einstein.

And by the way, what do you think is more likely – more geniuses are being born per capita or more parents are overstating the ability of their kids?

Not sure? Why don’t you go ask Baby Einstein… you Jackass!
