I'm really beginning to hate this conversation. We have it every day and I keep hoping it will change. I pick her up after school...
Me: Hello Honey! You look good. Did you have a nice day?
Me: What did you do today?
Her: I don't know. I don't remember.
Me: You just walked out of class...how can you forget all ready?
Me: Did you do some reading today?
Her: Yes. Some reading. About volcanoes.
Me: Cool! What did you learn about volcanoes?
Her: I don't remember.
Me: Did you do some math? Some writing?
Her: I think so. But Mummy...I...Don't...Remember!
Me: Fine. You don't remember. You've only spent six hours in that building and you cannot remember any of it. I'm sure your teachers are really proud.
Her: Can I go play Sonic...
Me: Yes. I think you should. Go now.
Are they sworn to secrecy or something? This is a variation of just about every after school conversation. I know I'm not alone as other parents have complained about the same thing. They could be sewing the panels onto soccer balls and I'd never know it! I feel cheated. I want to know what goes on after the teacher shuts the door.
