Poll: Have you ever been in the situation where your kids are right and you are wrong?
  • 49.5% - Yes. It's quite humbling. 161
  • 14.2% - No. As far as my kids are concerned, I'm never wrong. 46
  • 32.3% - I wouldn't say I'm never wrong, I just don't remember this ever happening. 105
  • 4% - I have something to say about this (comments) 13

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Really? I'm not the first to mark "I have something to say about this in the comments," but I am the first to leave a comment? Weird.

Aaaaaaanyway. Yes, I've had situations where I've been wrong and the kids have been right. I usually use it as an opportunity to show them how to be wrong gracefully, i.e., admit it and apologize for the mistake, rather than, say, turn orange, throw a temper tantrum, and insist that my "alternate facts" are really the right ones.
