Dad Trolled After Tweeting About His 'Smart' Home-Schooled Kids

Every parent thinks their children are the smartest, the cutest, and the overall best humans on the entire planet. And ironically, bragging parents are among the worst people on the entire planet and they all need to be shipped to an island somewhere where they can fight to the death over whose child can recite the alphabet backward before even being born. One father took to Twitter to brag about his children's intelligence, slam the public school system, and promote his new book. Needless to say, it didn't go down very well with other parents or teachers. Follow below to see how he was mercilessly trolled.

    The sanctimonious tweet that sparked the outrage

    Text - Adam Lane Smith @TheBrometheus My wife and I never baby talk to our kids. We use full sentences and a wide vocabulary including complex words. My son is 3 and can carry a full conversation. Adults at family gatherings are shocked at his social aptitude. My daughter isn't even 2 and she uses 4-syllable words.

    Turns out it was part of an attempt to plug his new, self-published book: Slaying Your Fear: A Guide For People Who Grapple With Insecurity

    Text - Adam Lane Smith @TheBrometheus This is taking off pretty hard so two things: Homeschool your kids if you don't want them exposed to rapacious teachers and poisonous families. Public school is a meat grinder where many die. And help support my kids' growth by buying my book: ADAM LANE SMITH, LMFT SLAYING YOUR FEAR A GUIDE FOR PEOPLE WHO GRAPPLE WITH INSECURITY ***** (56 Reviews) Slaying Your Fear: A guide for people who grapple with insecurity Slaying Your Fear: A guide for people who grap

    People weren't impressed with his tweets, and started a funny thread bragging about how talented their children (and pets) are.

    Text - Renaissance Man-child @CogitoErgoJokes Replying to @TheBrometheus Which 4-syllable words does your daughter most often use? "Daddy, my apple is putrefacient!" "I've pooped myself, I must admit, reluctantly." "Papa, your viral tweet seems fabricated!"

    Public school teachers also spoke up, taking offence to the tweet and defending their hard work and under-appreciation for their difficult profession.

    Text - WASP SUMMER, from afar @WaspSummer Replying to @TheBrometheus So, you don't understand what rapacious means, then? If you knew any teachers, you'd know they're underpaid and overworked, and often pay for supplies out of their own pockets. The failure is systemic, but, sure, punch down rather than question the system that gives you privilege
