Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
Am I the only one this doesn't bother? I mean, if you know their kid and he is just the average Joe with mom bragging out her butt, well you know she'll eventually see reality and realize her mistake. Now, this can be a little humorous at times when you ask the parent when little Sue will perform at the Olympics - when mom knows that you know Sue got pregnant at 12 and quit skating.

But then, if the parent really does have superior kids, it never hurts to have them and their kids as allies - little Jack just may be the next Bill Gates and willing to give you a job. Besides, they might be able to give you a couple of pointer on child-rearing.

Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
My three (adult) children were smart in school, very funny and creative. However I pretty much kept that information to myself when they were growing up because I couldn't stand the bragging parents. I once asked my husband to shoot me if he ever heard me talk like them. He agreed (a little too enthusiastically I thought).

Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
i'm a courier, and some of the houses i go to make me want to vomit

you open the door, and there are huge pictures of their sprogs all over their walls, with their University gowns on

you're right OP, it's the parents living their lives vicariously through their little darlings

good thing.

its natural for parents to want their child to be better than they were, and give the child more focussed learning and sport opportunities than they had.

Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
btw, aren´t that the same kind of parents as those who put up their toddlers as beauty queens like in "toddlers%tiaras"?

we don´t have that kind of stuff here (yet, and i hope we don´t get it).

Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
This thread is great.

There is a guy at work who claims his 11-year old child is a "genius." He said the kid's IQ has been tested at 140.

That reminds me when I was in school. A lot of the "gifted" kids in elementary school with the high IQ scores ended up not being that bright by the time they got to high school, and a lot of the mainstream kids were the ones who overachieved in high school.

Besides, I'd rather be dumb and happy than be smart and pushed to the point of breaking by overzealous parents who are trying to raise a super child.
