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.)
