My husband and I were both bored with school. There never seemed to be any challenge to it and I know that I made some stupid choices of subjects because of this.
Our kids, though, put us in the shade! I don't know if it's because they were born brilliant or if it's because they were nutured to be smart or some of each, but they are scary-smart. Both are in Gifted education, the older one skipped a grade and they both have huge plans for their futures. We're really glad they have so many opportunities today - although we are also a little envious that they have access to educational opportunities that we only dreamed of.
