It's really getting on my nerves. I have a few friends who do this. We all think our kids are super smart....no reason to go on & on & on about how much of a genius your kid is. I feel like saying "why don't you just come out & say it...say that you think your kid is smarter than everyone else's"
It doesn't bother me when i hear excitied moms talk about their kids & their progress, i can totally understand that & have done it myself. BUT there is a line that can be crossed when bragging about your child & i find it very annoying. Anyone else with me?

I know what you mean, sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who sees my kid objectively. I see his strengths but I also see what he needs to improve on as well. I'm not delusional when it comes to my kid.

Next time, ask if the child is in their school's gifted program. If they are that smart, they should be. That might get the subject to change.
My personal feeling is that grades are inflated. I don't see teachers handing out average grades these days.
