YES I do think it is a problem in America. I am not as scientifically literate as i would like so what i have been doing is I bought some books about science that are i guess middle school level and i have been reading them to dd and answering questions that she has and if i don't know the answer then i look it up and i learn something too but, the books are not too complex for such a young child so its been nice to read them with her!

As long as middle school moms continue to tell math teachers that they don't help the kids with their math; they wait until Dad gets home, we will continue to have a problem. Sometimes I am em brassed to be female. I still can't believe how many people in my town have told me (math teacher, counselor, another mom who also thinks it is the stupidest thing she has ever heard) that this is standard operation procedure around here. Disgusting. If you can't do 8th grade math you should be procreating!
