If you were at my house, you would never hear my perfectly trained three year old replying to my, "The answer is no, buddy." with, "No, Mom, the answer is yes." We don't allow things like that around here.
"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
