On Being Fed Up With Phonics

Cornflower: I don't wanna do this phonics anymore.

MA: I'm sorry, you can't just decide you don't want to do it. Everyone has to learn phonics.

Cornflower: Do I have to teach my kids phonics when I grow up?

MA: It's highly recommended.

Cornflower (sighs): Well... Do I have to use this book to teach them phonics?

(I assured her she could use any book she thinks is a good one. This conversation took place yesterday, our First Day of School, you understand.)
