Parent Pop Quiz Heather Hopson November 5, 2012 Uncategorized Dear Diary, I just took an online parent pop quiz and failed miserably. Well, I got a 66%, which is a D, which is like failing. When I taught middle school, I told my students who said they did their homework half of the time, that 50% was still an F. I’m going to blame it on a lack of sleep (See Monday’s post about a 5 a.m. trip to the pharmacy). Or maybe I wasn’t fully paying attention, since the American Giving Awards were on television. Heck, I think there were a couple of trick questions. And since there were only six, you pretty much have to get them all correct to get a good grade. No matter my excuse, I still scored a 66%. And the test creators post a taunting remark with your final score. It said something about reviewing the questions I missed. I translated that into who let you go home from with hospital with your baby? I then searched for other quizzes, trying to boost my ego with an A. Since I didn’t do well on the infant exam, I took the toddler test. I got a perfect score! There were difficult questions but no wrong answers, which made me remember that’s what’s motherhood is all about. You don’t have to be perfect to be a good mother. You’re child doesn’t care if you aren’t the smartest, skinniest, prettiest or richest person on the planet. They love you simply because you love them! Hey DFTM members, do you feel like your failing as a mother when you read articles about “perfect” parents? Should you take parent tests seriously?
