Here are some quotes that we relate to all too well:
"But when we asked the teacher what kind of help she thought our daughter needed to improve she said, 'Why would you want to improve her performance? She's above average, isn't she?'"
Here is a part of the story they told when a test their daughter took had an obviously correct answer marked wrong:
"Yes, the answer is correct. But that's a fourth-grade answer, and your daughter is only in the second grade. She isn't supposed to know that yet."
And another quote, this one in regards to the parents' decision to homeschool:
"...that we could do worse than fail - we could refuse to try."

There are some frustrating parts of Wii Active though (but it is still COMPLETELY worth it). If you don't have the nunchuk held in your hand just right, you might get "yelled" at for not doing the exercise correctly. Or if you stop to wipe the sweat (boy, do you sweat with this!), it "yells" at you. But overall, it is a great workout! We can do it at home rain or shine, under a ceiling fan, and without childcare!
