Dearie Dethroned!

Yesterday, Kiddo was asking a lot of math questions.  (We even did math yesterday, but she is really into asking addition and multiplication questions.)  She really does understand multiplication, so I thought, “Why not teach her some of the hard facts, then it won’t be so hard when she is older and doesn’t want to drill.”  So I asked her 7 X 8, and when she didn’t know I told her.  Then I told her to go ask Dearie, and when Dearie didn’t know I told Kiddo to tell her.  Oh my, Dearie was so mad!  She spent about an hour in her room calming down.  She later told me that she was the smart one and Kiddo was not allowed to know more than she did.  We had a long talk about that, and how she doesn’t like it when people get mad at her for knowing stuff she isn’t supposed to.  She has calmed down, but she still doesn’t like it when I ask Kiddo the “hard” multiplication facts.  On the other hand, Dearie now knows (and will forever know) 7 X 8 ;).

    Sounds like a good time for her to learn to apply 1 Corinthians 8:1b “Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.”
