asks difficult questions
shows curiosity and interest
in life and all its problems

Isn't satisfied with your answers
especially the evasive kind

Looks at you
as though you're mentally deficient
or inadequately educated

Above all
don't feel frustrated
or display intolerant emotions
and never resort to violence

Just be patient and understanding

You might have
produced a genius
or at the very least
an average child
with a normal healthy intelligence

On the other hand
maybe it's become apparent
that your parents didn't

Best wishes
