I was nagging my son to do something the other day and he said, "Mom, you are such a nuisance. Just leave me alone!"

I asked him what a nuisance was and he said it's something that's always bothering you. He said he learned it from his teacher. 

Our school is using a new program for vocabulary that really gets the kids to use the words in conversation. I've been really pleased to hear my students using the words we are learning. But I kind of feel like it backfired on me at home. I wasn't expecting my kindergartner to call me a nuisance. LOL

 Sounds like you need to talk to the superintendant and the media about this!  That is just WRONG that they are teaching your son to use words like that in school!  What is this world coming to?

I've spoken to my lawyer and we definitely have a case. 

I want to control every single thing my child learns and the school needs to check with me before teaching him things. What were they thinking!!!!

 my dd was talking to the parent's of her friend and said the word surreptitiously  in a sentence & everyone there stopped and stared at her, like she had a 3rd head. DD is a senior in high school as is her friend.
