How to launch a pre-emptive strike
I did the school pick up on Friday.
"We had a history test today daddy"
"Oh yeah, how did it go?"
"Well, the whole class found it really hard but Madame Florent went through it all verbally afterwards and I understand it perfectly now"
"That's good sweet-heart, practice it again when you do your homework this week-end"
"Oh, I will daddy. I did get the first question right and Madame Florent was really pleased when I held my hand up and explained it to the rest of the class"
"Well done darling, it's good that you're prepared to help others like that"
"Does that mean you're not going to be angry on Monday when you find out I've only got 1/10 in the test daddy".
