Do/did any of you have mothers who were teachers?

I did and I think that after teaching all day she didn’t want to teach at home. So her kids missed out some.

My dad does private tuition. He still has time for me but I feel uncomfortable socialising too much with him. But I do open up from time to time. And that’s good. And we joke about the house cats.

Sorry to hear : /. My dad was a school teacher and didn’t really like teaching me anything, lol.

Well, it really isn’t funny. People wonder how a teacher’s kid could be so ignorant.

Married to a high school English teacher.

I knew that about you, @MrSquirrel Did you take over for her when it came to your daughter?

I laugh to cover up the pain, don’t really like awkward moments. Yeah its sad.

My mom was a public high school and junior high school teacher. I used to get beat up because she was a teacher. She didn’t have any problems teaching me when I was a kid.

My whole family is teachers. Mother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousins, mother-in-law…

My mother wasn’t unwilling to teach us things even she got home. She even homeschooled 2 of her kids in the evenings after she got home.

My mom was a teacher, maybe you are right.

My mom was a teacher.

I remember she was really wiped out at the end of the day.

My mom was an elementary school teacher.

Nope. My wife and I both helped with English. I did more with things like biology, where I’m stronger and my wife is better at calculus and such than I am, so she lead there. What I found funny is that my wife is a bit more … timorous … then me when it comes to all things sex, so I wound up being the one who had The Talk with my daughter. Mom asked the kid later how I did and the kid gave me high marks, but, my wife wasn’t completely impressed with my instruction.

“YOU CALLED HER PERIOD SHARK WEEK?!?”
“It seemed appropriate and she agreed.”
“OMFG.”
