Child has a pretty nihilistic outlook on life, takes it out on her homework

If anything, this child is a pragmatist.

Reddit user MentalSewage shared an image of their daughter's homework page, on which the correct answer was supposed to be "we have this."

7. Who devised this test?

 

The clueless dept?

It's kinda like a friend of mine who was a product designer. He had to design a beach ball with the alphabet scattered all over it. It took literally days to arrange things so it didn't have dirty words running is some direction....

19. I would not be surprised if the child has dyslexia.

It's rarer in girls than boys, but it does crop up every now and again. And usually the kids with dyslexia are so smart they work around it a lot, with little tricks and coping strategies. It's hard to spot with the good copers.
