    As a teacher I do not find this “cute” OR “sweet” in the least bit. This is a prime example of why students are disrespectful and question authoritative
    figures. Why do something?… BECAUSE I SAID SO. I’m the adult and you, my friend are the child. END OF STORY.

    My son, who is now 12, possesses similar “abilities”, speaking/arguing in full sentences since age one. Our situation is now a nightmare. Good luck. I would suggest “Total Transformation” – our last and only hope. We are exhausted, and nearly out of hope. Wish us luck, too. Our advice: STOP TALKING. You can’t negotiate with selfishness.

    Why do people feel it necessary to judge everything. This video is adorable and we are all witnessing the birth of a great future lawyer lol. Why don’t you stop analyzing and just enjoy it!! And stop being so judgemental while you’re at it!
