- •When you know a cultural referenceI had a kid shocked and amazed that I'd heard of Dr.Dre.
- •When you don't know an arcane fact"How do you say ostrich in Hebrew? What??? You don't know!?!"
- •When you reveal you know what they're up toYes I can see you texting Gideon I say nothing to spare your dignity. And Kindergardeners; don't talk about Spy Club in room-average voices!!
- •Any detail of your personal life at all"Why weren't you here?" "I was sick" (Child struggles to project complete off-screen humanity to their teacher)
- •Any form of disciplineSomehow it's never fair and they never did anything and they can explain why they did it and someone else started it can't you see????
