I'm tempted to say No, but then it strikes me that parents must be teaching their kids something!?

I know what you mean though. It could easily be seen as a conceited claim.

I noted the quote the other day and also saw the sign above the door of the room where we were marking resits (also the location of my MA show) and I just thought it somehow appropriate.
