Genius SS won't stop boasting
The skid weekend is fast approaching and I was curious how you all would handle this situation...
SS14 has the life skills of a 6 year old (can't pair his own socks or make himself a sandwich for christ sake!) His grades are consistently C's and on standardized testing he does proficient or below. I had never met a kid with absolutely no life interests until I met SS. He loves to tell us little "facts" about politics, science, culture, religion, etc. that are just not true. For instance, he went off one day about how El Salvador is the most liberal South American country and thats why its terrible there. El Salvador is extremely conservative and he has no idea what its like there. Even his disney daddy is concerned he will never hold a real job. He is the youngest racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe I know.
A few years ago, due to falling behind in school, BM had him tested. There were numerous tests of all kinds with nothing significant but...one woman did a 10 minute evaluation and decided that he has a high IQ. FML
Now I've been hearing about his high IQ EVERY OTHER WEEKEND since! He has never missed a chance to bring it up, sometimes more than once over the weekend. Both his father and I ignore it. Now he thinks he needs to say it louder.
Ignoring is not working and my eyes are going to roll right out of my head. I can no longer bite my tongue but I don't want to say something completely unplanned and therefor possibly inappropriate or mean. I just don't want to hear his ridiculous boasting. Also, his sister is actually smart and she thinks he's the smart one. For once I feel bad for her.
Please tell me what to say or do before I lose it!
