Same: Parents of "Smart" Kids

Or rather I should say parents who talk about their smart kids all.the.time. These parents are the same on both sides of the pond. They generally fall into one of two categories:

1. The parent did not do well in school so they are unaware it is impolite to talk about smartness. They are proud they managed to produce a gifted child. Good for them. But they need to pick up the social grace to keep quiet about it.

2. The child is in fact not bright. I do not know why these parents feel the need to say their child is smart. Perhaps the parent feels guilty and pretending makes them feel better.  Again they should keep quiet and not draw unneeded attention to their less able child.

Either way it is so annoying to listen to them go on and on and on...
