    Simple explanations are sometimes the best.

    rshive…I agree with you fully; why lemont thinks that poor kid is his adult sounding board is beyond me?

    Does Lionel even know what Romans are?

    Or he might hear “Roman” again and think, “Oh great, more daddy geek talk. Boring.”

    When I was a kid, one of my favorite pastimes was reading about Greek mythology. Kids are often smarter than their parents think.

    Amen to that. Our society still underestimates our children’s ability to learn. The last school my wife taught at actually treated pre-k and kinder as a daycare saying it was just prep for 1st to get used to the environment, that they were too young to actually learn things like math and reading yet. All my kids were reading, counting and doing very basic math long before pre-k.

    @Sherlock Watson

    I was only a bit older than that kid before I started reading, and soon after that I was into Greek mythology. Then was deep into astronomy, and tied that back to the mythology I had self-studied.
    Yes, kids can be smart in areas their parents aren’t if they develop an interest.
    If a kid doesn’t know about Romans by say 8-10 years old, they are woefully uneducated.
